Quite herbal and full of taste despite the 40%. Has a certain acidic taste that I guess is typical of Raicilla from this area. Perhaps what others call funk. Not smoky at all and different from the average mezcal. Many kinds of herbs and a bit like aquavit. Read somewhere that you should drink raicilla colder than mezcal, but this did not improve the taste for me at all. The price seems a bit high.
Very strange taste, almost like someone mixed a bag of corn with some paint, and then set the whole thing on fire. But in a very good way. Takes a while to get used to, but full of taste, and with a nice alcohol percentage. Perhaps not for people who enjoy subtle flower aromas, but great for those who like a strong and very different mezcal. I like it a lot, and I will buy this once in a while. Very good value for money.
