Rey Campero Madre-Cuishe

Apr 8, 2019

Lot D5008-MC. Soft and secretive. This “mother” is not a loud and angry mother-in-law but rather a warm and quiet maternal figure that will tuck you in at night. Probably one of the least “in your face” karwinskiis I’ve had. I get colored pencil shavings, pepper, and jalapeno. It’s interesting but easily overshadowed by 4-5 of Campero’s other offerings. Like other reviewers, I’d start the night with this one and move onto something more memorable.

Rey Campero Jabali

Apr 8, 2019

Lot 85008A-J. Rey Campero Jabali. Acetone, Asian pear, and sweet perfume dominate this heavy hitting Jabali. I’d drink this all the time if I could afford it. Definitely not an evening-starter or a mezcal for first time drinkers, but if you work your way up to this…you’re in for a treat.

Siete Misterios Espadin

Apr 8, 2019

Lot ESP11/16. Sweet citrusy espadin with some black pepper and anise readily available on the back of the tongue. Hard for me to tell it’s a product of a clay pot still, but it is one of the least expensive offerings in that category and is worth a try for that reason alone.

Los Vecinos del Campo Espadin

Apr 3, 2019

Lot ESJ451801. Bubble gum and perfume over bitter spice and rum flavors. Good entry level espadin.

Union Viejo

Apr 3, 2019

Lot UV/1118. Woody, earthy, easy-sipping mezcal for a great price. I don’t pick up too much tobala in the mix but maybe some of the pine, cedar and black pepper coming through is that. Solid choice for a weeknight.

Tosba Espadin

Apr 2, 2019

Lot 20. A complex and delicious espadin – some funk, like overripe fruit, on the nose. Sweet and citrusy with lemon, wood, and camphor flavors. Light smoke. Fantastic to sip neat.
