This is not nearly as offensive as I thought it would be from reading the reviews. the “super smokey” attribute manifested more as a kind of polite petroly and well-rounded, smooth nectary sweetness. For lack of a better description, if you were ever at a gas station and enjoyed the smell of the fuel – this will probably satisfy you. I’m still exploring this one as it surely turns out to be a good purchase (CHI-192)
This is the second offering from Derrumbes that I’m trying, and it is just as excellent as the previous one. comparing to their Salmiana offering – the nose is much more balanced here, but there is almost no heat on the palate, and it leaves a taste of peppery deliciousness and leaves you longing for the next sip. Very Good!
Lot 54. This is one of my first mezcals. took me a while to get over the stench upon opening the bottle. I actually was dissapointed at first – it was too funky, rotten and intense. I had it with a bit of ice and that opened up the flavours so much. in the next days I started sipping it neat and everything mellowd down and I got really comfortable with it.
I’m not great with describing tastes and flavours but I can just say I ended up cherishing every last drop of this bottle. probably fell in love with mezcal 🙂
