Easy sipper. Low smoke. Cheesy, as others have mentioned. Very solid if not a standout
Excellent. Smooth and sweet with some dry pepper heat coming through. Low smokiness fits well.
Very smooth. A little pepper, a little veg, a little smoke, all tied to gether with a nice sweetness crisp finish. Very easy sipper. Almost tastes like a 40%.
Liquid jalapeño, but not harsh. Very deep flavor, and at a great price. Will keep on hand going forward.
Earthy, rotten fruit nose. Great salty pepper flavor up front with very smooth finish. Could benefit from a bit more bite by upping the abv.
B0016CU4719 839/1800. Second cuishe confirms that I love agave karwinskii. Very mild smoke, earthy notes, citrus, and a light peppery finish with floral notes throughout. Very well balanced. Each sip introduces more flavors to pick out. Despite the many flavors it goes down smooth and does not burn out the palate. Excellent, only thing holding back from 5 is I would like a sharper pepper bite at the end.
Lot: TEJ471119. 45/144. First Tepeztate. Great tingly pepper right up front. Sweet finish. Very smooth. Light smoke. Almost too smooth and mellow. I would take even more of the great, but mild flavor!
Very smooth with a nice peppery bite finish. Nothing jumps out, but it goes down easy straight. Reminds me of a better Ilegal joven espadin.
Nothing extraordinary. Basic mezcal flavors. In blind taste test it had a briney almost meaty flavor in comparison to others. Ok for sipping, and cheap price make it an OK bottle to have around, but I always find myself reaching for another bottle instead.
Batch SOJCO1-20 Bottle 106/720C. First cuishe mezcal and I am a huge fan. Much more of the vegetable and pepper I love. Light on smoke. Bursting with flavor.
A bit harsh upfront with smoke and pepper. A little of citrus to back it up after. Not ideal lingering aftertaste. Ok entry to mezcal especially at $30. Can sip, but probably better for cocktails.
Good intro mezcal. Not overly complex, not overly smokey. Ok sipper and good for mixed drinks. Light and smooth at 40%.
CHI – 203. Dry and spicy with decent smoke and some citrus. Came out slightly above middle of the pack in a blind taste test (just ahead of Vida, which is less than half the price!). Very solid, but was expecting a bit more for the price.
Batch YJ11-20, Bottle 341/5100. First pechuga. Most unlike the other mezcals I have had. Sweet with light spice pepper, almost piney when combined. Bursting with flavor.
