The nose on this blend—dotted with talcum powder (clay), lemon, and magnolia blossoms—is perfumed and extremely pretty. The flavors of sweet, floral-driven earth and river rocks with a touch of salinity paint the palate as sweet lilac-vanilla takes you to the lingering, round, and creamy peaty-smoke finish.

Wine Enthusiast: 90 Points

Expect a concentrated smoky profile, from start to finish. This mezcal opens with menthol and mint, backed by vanilla-sugar sweetness in the background. The midpalate turns smoky and piny, like embers billowing in the forest, and finishes relatively fiery, echoing a smoky menthol note.

A slightly smoky, yet herbaceous undertone rests on the center of the palate, while citrus and floral notes from the Barril are introduced and strengthened by the warm viscose finish of the Mexicano. This is a light and easy sipping mezcal, which will delight and surprise you with its complex lingering finish. The Espadín agave, known as the genetic Mother of the Blue Weber Agave, is used to produce tequila, and is also the predominant agave used in mezcal production. Unique in itself, the characteristics of this agave showcase the aromas of wet earth, a rich smokiness on the mid-palate, and a finish reminiscent of wildflowers. Barril, this thick-foliaged, wild agave, often used as fencing to divide land in Oaxaca, intensifies the complexity of this mezcal. As citrus and floral notes arise, hints of green peppers compliment the nose. The palate is a delightful balance of citrus and creamy banana. Mexicano, The Mexicano agave thrives in the moist environment of lower elevations. This wild agave can grow quite large and is usually harvested when close to ten years of age. The concentration of sugar in the fully mature agave produces an extremely powerful mezcal. The palate is distinctively herbaceous and earthy with a long lasting finish in the mouth.
