Tasting Notes

"The aromas explode with displays of fruit, clove, cinnamon, AGAVE, walnuts, and a host of other subtleties. The flavors are impeccably distributed and balanced. Every aspect of your palate experiences a different flavor and every sip shows something new. This is a highly-sippable, complex and yet humbly approachable mezcal with a depth of surprises to enjoy."
