Producer's Tasting Notes
A bold liquid that leaves a viscous trail around the rim of the glass.
On nosing, the first thing you notice is that this is a complex spirit. Initial investigation reveals fresh jasmine and citrus aromas before more pungent notes of acetone, pine and acacia honey are highlighted by a gentle smokiness.
Lively on the palate, fresh flavours of citrus and pine combine with a rich sweetness from the agave to give a little spiciness again underlined by a subtle smokiness.
The finish is extremely full, with the sweet character combining with the smokiness to make this mezcal very moreish indeed.
