Tasting Notes

"With a note of fresh cut bell peppers on the nose, El Jolgorio Madrecuixe offers an inviting aroma. It's rich and earthy on the palate, with fresh green flavors and a background smokiness. The spirit finishes long with a bit of heat. The Madrecuixe is one robust, complex, and enjoyable mezcal."
