batch AMB-32. Cheech Marin mezacal! Tried it at Dos Coyotes. My wife found it flat and boring with smoke at the end. I find a clear agave smell, with a vegetal, almost nutty flavor with a light sweetness. A little smoke and burn at the end, but generally smooth. I like it, especially at the price and it’s available at a burrito chain no less!

Watery, off-putting, horrible. Negative stars in reality.

Somewhere between 3.5 – 3.75. At $36, its very good. Creamed corn, eucalyptus, cream cheese. Worth buying a bottle

Beautifully smooth, fun to drink with subtle smoke that’s so well-integrated from beginning to end.
