Tasting Notes

"Espíritu Lauro Reposado Mezcal is much creamier and rich than the joven, with deep caramel and vanilla flavors. Tropical fruits bind everything together ending in sweet, smoked meat smoke, subtle, warm spices and a refreshing spearmint finish. This mezcal definitely shows elegant complexity and finesse, intriguing the palate with each sip."
