San Cosme Mezcal

Mezcal San Cosme borrows it’s name from Saint Cosmas who, alongside his twin brother Damian, is worshiped by some as the Patron Saint of Doctors. Together, the brothers defied death in several occasions, and miracles are attributed to them even after their passing, appearing in people’s dreams and healing those who implore them.

Very smooth taste, very light flavours. Smokiness is not so dominating.

Smoky but very light, not spicy at all.

Tried recently in Australia. For what this is and the price point it’s perfect for an everyday sipper and excellent in cocktails. Lower ABV makes it so approachable.

Sweet up front with a balanced smoked agave flavour, some light caramel flavour. Yum.

It needs a warning „Do not sip“.
It has a little bit of smoke, goes ok in cocktails.

Had a ton of cocktails in Germany and Switzerland with San Cosme and it does the job. As a sipper it isn’t great. Sugar water and soft spearmint. Almost like a lime cordial. 2 as a sipper and 3.5 as mixer.

Doesn’t taste like Mezcal at all, it feels more like a mildly smoky Tequila.
Decent in mixing drinks, but quite frankly lacking to make it a sipping Mezcal.
I truly have a problem with the nose on this one, which I thought disturbing at times.

Quite mild smoke, purple flowers but otherwise quite shy. Quite smooth and easygoing on the palate.

Scent: 2/5
