TASTING NOTES

APPEARANCE:

Clear with hints of bright silver.

PALATE:

A crowd-pleasing mezcal with a soft taste of cooked agave and toasted almond, nuts and pepper flavors. A mild, lingering finish unfolds pleasant flavors of grapefruit and fresh, minty notes.

AROMAS:

Medium plus intensity accompanied by notes of minerals, moist earth and clay accentuated by a soft note of cooked agave. A sequence of floral aromas that includes white flower or rose petals and freshly cut sugar cane emerges followed by pears, golden apples and citrus fruits, such as grapefruit. Spiced undertones are revealed, including pepper and clove. A subtle touch of anis and cardamom joins herbal notes of peppermint and mint. Aeration allows for a remembrance of candied or caramelized fruits and finishing aromas of toasted almonds.

ADDITIONAL NOTE:

Personally, after an overall assessment based on the tasting stages, this is the only mezcal i have encountered that has aromatic notes of maguey worm salt, making it a versatile spirit when choosing ingredients for cocktails and pairings.
