Lot 01CDBS15 from 2015. Smells of bubble gum and tastes of sugar cane. This is a special mezcal.
Lot 31CDIG03 Edition 9 2017 bottle 501/514. Not quite as good as the prior batch I had. This one is a little thin but overall good value.
This is a nice and mellow sipper. It has a sweet candy taste. It taste similar but better than Alipus blue which is also made in San Luis Del Rio.
One of my favorite Del Maguey espadins. Fruity and soft.
Very nice Jabali. It’s on the softer side, but in a good way. Smells of wild flowers. tastes of grapefruit and black pepper.
I love this mezcal, one of my favorites. It’s got a taste of bubble gum. It’s very soft on the nose and palate. If you like Dobadaan this is a must try.
This bottle surprised me, it’s a consistent cuishe. Taste of minerals and fruit. Very approachable. Great value. The bottle it’s self is strange.
This has a nice smell of carmel. Taste of sweet agave and a bit of spice. Pretty down the middle as far as tobala goes.
This was my favorite of the Mala Idea’s I’ve tried. You can definitely taste the jabali in this one despite only being 11% jabali. Very drinkable.
I wish this tasted as good as the bottle looks. Compared to other tobalas I can not say I enjoyed this one. It has a fishy taste.
Compared to other espadins for the same price, I can not recommend this one. It has a bit of sweetness, but it’s very harsh. It may be better as a mixer.
Batch 16. This is a great session mezcal. It’s sweet and enjoyable. The two other Reyes y Cobardes’ were too funky for me, so this one is definitely my favorite. It’s a great buy for the price, plus it comes in a one liter bottle with the wax top that I love to peel off.
One of my favorites by Alipus. Lot SLR008/15. It’s sweet up front with some nice heat to finish.
17J03-15 47.7%. Don Beto might be my favorite mezcalero. This is amazing. It’s sweet, smooth and a bit of citrus. Hard not to finish the bottle!
GAD-X-0451 Enjoyable tepe. Has tobacco and lime flavors. Good price.
Edition 4. An unbelievable mezcal. Funky smell. Smooth herbal spicy taste.
Mezcalero: Emigdio Jarquin. April 2016. Lot: E-06-MC-16. Floral on the nose as well as on the tongue. It’s sweet with fruity flavors. A bit of spice lingers on the tongue. One of my favorite Madre Cuixe.
Very different mezcal. Smells and tastes like butter popcorn. Extremely smooth and soft on the tongue.
Bought a bottle of edition #9 2015. This is excellent. A bit peppery on the nose. Taste is fruity with a finish of spice. It’s very soft and easy to drink. My sources told me it is one of Steph Curry’s favorite Mezcals.
Unique. Smells of fresh greens with a bit of sweetness. Smoothness is unparalleled. Had it fresh off the still at Real Minero in Oaxaca. It went down like water.
Big fan of this mezcal. It’s fruity and peppery and very smooth. Drank a bottle during the Patriots Super Bowl comeback. It reminds me of Julian Edelman’s miracle catch.
