As close to perfect as you’re going to find. Agave is present from start to finish, balanced finish, long vegetal after taste.

Light spearmint and sage on the nose, very refreshing. Flavors of sweet agave, pepper, mint, and anise. The high proof doesn’t overpower up front, instead it leaves a pleasant vibration on the sides of my tongue for a long while, like a tuning fork. Really nice HP.

On the nose, it’s smoky, earthy, and very clear baked agave. Getting some herbal notes, and that clear and distinct mesquite melds with a minerality that I find very pleasing. On the palate, Smokey, peppery, cooked agave coming in strong. Has a note that reminds me of BBQ. Definitely some bite, but surprisingly subtle for such high proof. Definitely a bit of a brineyness but it comes and goes. Some charcoal. Full bodied and oily. Very interesting, if you gave me this and said it was a mezcal, I’d believe you. It definitely has some distinct tequila specific notes (yes, I’m aware tequila is a mezcal but you know what I mean!) but very different. I’d definitely put this in my mezcal section in my bar. Very interesting and enjoyable, but too mezcal like for my liking.
