Mezcal Pierde Almas Botanica +9
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed October 3, 2021Johnathan Barbieri, Distiller Bottle 568 of 1671 Lote: 17-BOT 45% Nose: super bright botanical scent. Immediately, I’m getting juniper and star anise. It’s a permeating smell. I poured 1oz and sit it on my bedside table and could smell it from the other side of my queen bed. Second smell I get the note of coriander, fennel seed, and nutmeg. The mezcal is underneath the botanicals, as it is the base. I get a vegetal smell, like a green pepper or mint. It’s obviously very herbaceous. Smells sweet. Taste: I can definitely see how this could be a sipping gin. I’ve never sipped gin before, as I’ve only used it in some cocktails. I find this very pleasant. The 45% hits your tongue in a pleasant wave as you savor the botanicals with the espadín base. I find it to be overwhelmingly juniper forward but with some spice and citrus underneath to help balance it out. My go to gin cocktails are an aviation and a gimlet, I think this would excel there. I’ve never had a Negroni but I’d be interested to try one traditional style and one with this pierde almas +9 botanicals to be able to compare/contrast. Very delicious as a sipping gin though. I could see this being used as an aperitif or digestif truly. Depends on the meal. I bought this because I was so intrigued by a gin and mezcal combo and for the $80 USD I paid, I feel that it was worth it.80.0 USD per Bottle
Mezcal Joven — Puebla, MexicoReviewed October 2, 2021LR3000 Nose: dried fruits like pineapple or mango. Green pepper. tropical with notes of natural leather and a touch of acetone. Taste: it hits your tongue like an explosion. very bold flavor. I definitely get a taste of tropical fruit like pineapple or mango but it is fleeting or overpowered by a smoky punch with an acetone finish. When it first glazes over my tongue I almost feel like it has a leather quality to its viscosity. Lots of leather and spice in flavor. It’s reminiscent of whisky…or the idea of whisky that’s aged in barrels. Has a certain level of spice to it and it lingers on your tongue long after you’ve swallowed. Edit review40.0 USD per Bottle
Mezcal Pierde Almas Wild Tepextate
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed October 1, 2021Lote: PAZ020919 55% Nose: definitely get notes of banana and natural cocoa bean or dark chocolate upon the first sniff. I get a mineral in the background. I also get a hint of freshly cut wood, something akin to pine, and citrus in the second whiff. Taste: wow what an explosion of flavor in your mouth! It definitely packs a punch at 55% but with such complex flavor. The banana flavor comes through as a banana that is just about to ripen enough for it to be sweet. Really wonderfully complex mezcal.
Mezcal Amarás Cupreata
Mezcal Joven — Guerrero, MexicoReviewed September 29, 2021Bottled in 2021. Spring Lote: 7 Nose: vegetal, lightly cooked agave, citrus/bright Taste: light acetone, rich vegetal flavor like a pepper…definitely herbal with notes of mineral and earth. Not so much smoke. Definitely a bright mezcal. Feel: soft, kind of watery viscosity. Maybe even a little salty feeling. Overall great flavor and at a great price point. I bought this to expand my collection so I would have a cupreata.35.0 USD per Bottle
Mezcal Pierde Almas Pechuga
Mezcal Joven — Oaxaca, MexicoReviewed September 29, 2021Lote: 10-P 2017 Nose: dried fruits, light anise, nutty aroma Taste: meaty, leather like, savory, anise!! What a treat! It’s silky feeling in my mouth with a bite due to the 49%. I can’t believe how delicious this is.105.0 USD per Bottle
Maker's Mark Bourbon
Bourbon — Kentucky, USAReviewed September 12, 2021Nose: warm, but in a vanilla kind of way. Nothing really special Taste: thin mouth feel. Vanilla, oak/woody, simple straightforward flavor. I think it’s kind of boring. Easy to drink so that’s a plus for some.
Nixta Licor de Elote
Other Liqueurs — MexicoReviewed September 10, 2021 (edited July 5, 2023)Wonderful liqueur. Sweet tortilla chip. Buttery. Notes of caramel. Yes to the oily feels but also may just be the density from the sugars added (think like the viscosity of simple syrup) I drank this after drinking the same brand‘s whiskey, Abasolo. Kind of feel like this is just a sweetened version of that whiskey. May or may not be true but i still enjoy this liqueur. Made a margarita and subbed this for cointreau and enjoyed it a lot! would definitely pair it with an earthy or vegetal tequila/mezcal
