Review and Tasting
Sampled on 27/07/2018
(sample bottle LOT AB-161) Crystal clear.
Pungent, smoky and earthy with barbeque charcoal, baked apple pie and what the back label aptly describes as “parmesan rind”.
Slightly sweet baked apples with heavily smoked pepper-rubbed meat, tarragon and faint crème de violette.
Faint star anise notes emerge on the long pleasingly smoked and spiced finish.
Smoked apple pie and parmesan rind sums up the nose, while the palate balances smoke, rich baked apple, crisp acidity and spice. Wild Jabali is deservedly a multi-award winning mezcal.
