These other reviews are spot on. Minerally, sweet with lavender. Big fan of madrecuixe and this can hang with the best of them.

Very strong Madre. If you like this type of agave this bottle is the purest form of it I’ve tasted. Like liquid soil, extremely earthy and strong. The first time I had it I found the flavor overwhelming but I now appreciate what the mescalero was able to achieve with the madrecuixe

Lot YJ07-16. Very vegetal and earthy. This is almost musty in its earthiness. There’s also a lot of fruity notes of orange, plantains, and citrus. The Mezcalero brand did the Special Bottling #1, which is made by Alberto Ortiz with agave madre-cuishe, so it was essentially just a different batch of the same mezcal. The Mezcalero brand was also aged in glass for 18 months, which gave it a bit of a rounded feel, but this is still a great mezcal.
