Love this tequila! It definitely has the smokiness of mezcal and sotol but still vegetal and nicer finish for me than a lot of mezcals. A lot of mezcals finish tastes like soap to me (my tastebuds). I do not get this. I wouldn’t say the flavor is singular but the smokiness is very prominent. Looking forward to Saturday to taste next to Reposado at friends house. I look forward to tasting this more.

A Tequila made in the style of Mezcal. Really exciting and excellent stuff. Some smoke, lots of vegetal notes, a bit of liberality, and lingering tropical fruit. Love it.

Nice smoky aroma with very smooth finish. This is differently the way tequila was meant to be made. Tried this at the owners restaurant in Philly.

A fair amount of smoke from the pit roasting. This mezcal/tequila production hybrid is interesting for the proof (over 100), the pit roasting and mallet mashing of the pinas in lieu of roller mill or tahona crushing and a filipino still made of copper and wood for the end distillation would lead you to expect something legendary. While pleasing to sip this juice is as others have said, just a bit too sweet and singular in its taste profile. I would expect more complexity for the care taken during production to recreate bygone methods of making tequila. I give kudos though for being bat friendly in its promotion of sustainable agave practices.

Interesting smoky nose and finish (like the finish!), but the flavor is too sweet and one-dimensional. Enjoy the mezcal-tequila production experiment, but I'd like like to see more focus on mouth flavor.

Slight smoke but a lot of vegetal and celery aromas. I really love how this smells. Much more smoke in the flavor that lingers, similar to a good mezcal, but a bit flat and not very complex. Finish is very light and gentle, especially for a high proof tequila. I applaud the effort that went into this. Looking forward to the next batch, which I expect will be an even better taste of tequila history.
