Tasting Notes

First Tasted at Meeting No. 39 in August 2015

Garrett  •   •  4.5

From nose to throat, long charcoal pile driver of a mezcal. My perfect flight would involves this mezcal, a Black Arts scotch, and a smokey Balcones Brimstone. My wife wouldn't kiss me for a week.

Kevin  •   •  4.0

Reminded me of an Islay scotch, only with burritos.

Todd H.  •   •  4.0

Great body. Classic entry mezcal. Exceptional tang and smokiness.

Donald  •   •  3.5

Smokey aroma and a complex taste.

Gavin  •   •  3.5

Sweet and sour but without spice. Just enough smokey abrasion to keep me from chugging.

Jason A.  •   •  2.5

Harsh and aggressive. Smoke is the prominent note, but it has an almost floral finish.

Kevin  • 

Smoky without punching you in the face; balanced by underlying sweetness; charcoal/campfire, reminiscent of Islay but with burritos.
