Very special. If you’re in the mood for something refreshing, this is it. I can picture myself drinking it on the deck on a hot day by the lake. Fragrant watermelon, cucumber, slight citric and lactic notes. Easy drinking but sufficiently complex
Probably my personal favourite from Mexico in a bottle event in SF. Extremely unique and well produced. Even at 53% it didn’t feel overbearing at all. Creamy, sweet agave moving into a tobacco, musty presence with a bit of cacao. Satisfying, long finish. I’d get a bottle!
Best value coming out of Convite and something I’ll grab as a no-brainer when I’m in the mood for something from that region.
Bit of convite brininess with a balance of sweet agave, herbal freshness and toasted wood smoke.
Something I used to use in Mexico for cocktails a lot. Not a very interesting sipper.
Briny, slightly citric and bit of bonfire.
Overall does the job, but I tend to use others in its place now. I like Sacro Imperio 42% Mexican version for cocktails as it has the cenizo profile that works well with many ingredients. Also a better deal and a good sipper
Overall an enjoyable pour. Needed a little bit of time to open up. When I first opened the bottle I wasn’t much of a fan. Coming back to it a few nights later I dug it.
Nice after-dinner pour as it leans toward sweeter/fruitier side of the spectrum.
Sweet, toasty agave on the palate moving to a creamy, stone-fruit flavour. Medium finish and great mouth-feel.
I would buy it again as a sipper, although there are lots of brands to consider at the price point.
Lote M-10: My personal favourite from Lagrimas. Little minerality with a sweet vanilla taste coating the mouth before being swept away by a vegetal, ginger-like subdued spiciness thats gives away to a satisfying finish. Great work by Fabiola, a great maestra vinatera and a great person
No lot # – I agree with Jonny on the chalky minerality. Also got dry leaves and a bit of winter spices on the palate. I tend to like drier mezcales over super fruity and could drink this every day; however, this particular lot didn’t leave me with the same wow factor as the frutal/herbal. Still a great mezcal and will try again and again
No lot # – This was my personal favourite from the Inaequidens flight. Was perfectly balanced between herbal freshness, lightly astringent (dry) and a touch of sweetness. Great finish and left me wanting more so I had to grab a bottle for home. These guys are doing a great job in a beautiful location and are super welcoming
No lot number. Tried a flight at the distillery. Light floral herbaceousness giving way to a smooth apricot-like dried fruit note. Nice medium finish. Overall a well produced mezcal at a picturesque setting
*will update with another lot when I open the bottle I purchased
