Puntagave Rustico Mezcal

Nov 19, 2023

Lote No. E02 on the hologram (although the back label shows Lot 001). I very much enjoyed this expression. Fresh and light nose, full of agave fragrance. Easy sipper, sweet, vegetal flavors with lots of agave character. Long finish with a little bitterness and mild burn.

Thin and bright. Green mineral flavors. Soapstone and slate. Graphite. Wet rocks. Faint minty essence. Nice finish.

Sweet and full. Very traditional agave flavor. Not distinctive but delicious. A solid example of classic mezcal. Gateway mezcal for newbies. A great to start an exploration into mezcal.

Tasted this bottle under a different brand (Mono de Calenda). Tasty front and full mouthfeel but less tasty long finish.

A touch rough on the first sip then mellows out a bit but retains some spiciness. A little bitter for my taste and not a lot of terroir. Okay overall.

Hard to drink this one even when mixed. Sour smell and taste. No redeeming qualities that I can find.

Light and sweet and distinctively Jabali.

Compact and concentrated flavors. Citrusy sweetness with a slight mineral bitterness.

Aromas of model airplane glue – like the stuff Jeff Spicoli from Fast Times would have rolling around in his van. Slightly bitter flavor; less pleasing than the smell. Add a drop of water and INSTANTLY it smells like fresh baked bread and bitterness mostly gone. Very interesting expression!!

Whoa! First sniff is cigarette butts in a soup of warm beer. Let it sit for a bit and cigarettes magically turn to rose water. Add 2 drops of water and the rose transforms to orange blossom water. One of the most interesting spirits I’ve tasted. Best for a MENSA meeting.

Best to taste this one in a cognac glass. Gentle aromas of agave and (strangely) a familiar (very pleasant) plasticy smell from my childhood. Nicely sweet flavor and long finish. Fun expression to explore slowly over an evening.

Exceptional. Delicious flavors and an easy finish.
