Excellent mezcal on the cleaner and lighter end of the spectrum, but still complex and interesting. Citrus is well balanced with some warm agave sweetness to round out the palate.

Nose is lemon lime with gentle smokiness and essence of dried resinous wood. Body is moderately light, with some pleasing fireworks on the tongue reminiscent of rye whiskey. Arrival to the palate is dominated by lime and lemon peel, partially offset by the agave’s earthy/spicy sweetness. Gentle smokiness continues throughout while notes of white pepper, dried savory leaves and cloves rise later. Finish is limey sour at first, giving way to a long lingering return of the agave sweetness and, after many minutes, buttery caramel.
