Give this a try! I get lots of blue corn masa and mellow white rum. The wheat notes are like an unaged Weller wheat bourbon. I split a bottle with a friend so mine has been half empty for a year or more – that might have mellowed it out a bit. I think this could be great in cocktails.

There are a bunch of fake reviews here – they are pretty obvious to spot. It is unfortunate that friends of the brand owner or whomever decided to publish their WORTHLESS “tasting notes”. Capital letters make words more intense 😉

Ignore the fake reviews, but don’t pass up a taste of this unique spirit. FYI, the average price for a 750ml is $35 USD. For the price, uniqueness, and versatility.. this is easily 3.5 stars. Lot 003, 42.2%.

It is a unique and different drink, the pox IS NOT MEZCAL and it IS NOT TEQUILA, it cannot be compared, it is another type of completely traditional drink from Mexico.
It is an ancestral drink where all the ingredients are perfectly combined- I highly recommend it

Tough to review this, since it’s the only pox I’ve ever had, and probably ever will. Considering it isn’t an agave spirit, I’m trying not to judge this against the mezcals I’m normally sipping.

Lots going on here in terms of aroma. Something new each time. Coffee, chocolate, light corn aroma, kind of funky smelling, smells like glue at times.

Pretty full bodied, honestly more burn than I expected at the proof point. Definitely taste a little bit of dark chocolate, with some moonshine-like corn flavor thrown in there too.

An interesting experience, for sure.

I read a couple of reviews about this POX and I think they are compering it with an agave spirit, and this is very different. Siglo Cero is my favorite Pox. All the flavors are perfectly combined. If you want to try an exotic spirit made of corn this your best option.

I wanted to like this, because it sounded fun and weird.

But then I tried it, and it was certainly weird and not too fun.

Not even sure how to rate this. Bought a bottle a couple of years ago when it first hit the US, and maybe 95% of the liquid is still sitting in the bottle. Very sweet. Tastes like white dog corn whiskey mixed with xtabentun. Rough. Not for me… definitely gonna have to either pass off to friends to try or use in cocktails from here on out
