I did enjoy it, but I’m missing some depth and complexity, which I would expect from an aged mezcal.
The mezcal isn’t amazing, but it has a dear place in my heart. I remember sitting in their window sill on a pillow drinking this mezcal and watching the world go by. It might not be the best, but I can’t have much of an unbiased opinion when I have such a romantic memory of this brand.
At under $50, it’s not a bad deal. Totally drinkable. I wouldn’t order it if I were in Oaxaca, but pretty decent for our selection in the States.
This is one of the first mezcals that convinced me that mezcal is not just “smoky tequila”. It has all the usual notes of a decent espadin, without too much smoke to cover the flavors.
Honestly, like the other one I tried from this brand, it fell flat. Disappointing
