Review and Tasting
Sampled on 01/08/2015
(sample bottle Lot: SCM-128) Crystal clear.
Floral, grapefruit and lemon citrus with subtle smokiness. Subtle crème caramel and toffee.
Slightly sweet with citrus zest, buttery fudge and vanilla. Some honeysuckle floral notes.
Long spicy, peppery finish with fresh lemon zestiness. Pleasing lingering acidity.
Smooth and slightly sweet so a very approachable mezcal, while also complex with fabulous zesty citrus notes.
