Nucano Joven

My first impression was that this is a knock-your-socks-off good mezcal. Plenty of smoke and spice, and the initial kick is a glory. It’s almost like distilling nature’s fruit loops. There’s a delicious lingering spice and agave, though the juice’s complexity and distinctness seems somewhat diminished in the finish. Batch NJE02-17 bottle 561

Ilegal Joven

Floral, dry fruit, light on smoke, fairly complex and long on the finish. Doesn’t smack you like a 45%-50% abv juice does, but it’s a gem for the price.

Union Uno

Buttery vanilla sweetness and floral notes with plenty of smoke. The finish trails off a little soon, and there’s a tendency towards burning alcohol, but not too often and not harsh. Easy sipper, quite good, but not knock-your-socks-off good. Perfect starter.

Delirio Joven

Tried at a tequila bar in Austin. It’s smoky enough and distinctly espadín, but lacks finish, spice, and complexity. 2.5 / 5
