Pickle brine, earth, fruity mint. Very smooth but also clears out your sinuses instantly. Typical Cuixe notes throughout the nose, palate and finish. Really unique, and while its not my favorite, I can appreciate the originality here.
Rich! Blue cheese funk on the nose that translates to the palate along with mango and some pretty strong cinnamon bite. Its really good but the only drawback is a sometimes bitter soapy finish that can take away from the other flavors. Solid Tobala overall.
Liquid candy. Lots of vanilla without being overtly sweet and the perfect amount of smoke. The only aged mezcal I’ll drink and its worth every penny.
Industrial smoke kick to the head with some stone fruit in the background but you have to search for it through the burn. Excellent for cocktails calling for a good amount of smoke but a bit too harsh as a sipper. That being said, friends who enjoy peaty scotches enjoyed this one more than the complex agaves that minimize smoke. Good starter mezcal for those new to the spirit.
Loads of poblano and bok choy. Sweeter than I was expecting but also with a light hill top airiness to it . My favorite Espadin from Del Maguey.
