    The nose is mild and kind of sweet with a surprising amount of tropical fruit (with an emphasis on banana). It's a smooth drink and is sweet, but not as sweet as it smells. There's definitely mezcal smoke with iodine elements and Earth alongside the fruit. As I sip more, the balance starts to come out, with spices and herbs balancing each other. The smoke is a bit much, but it's fine for a mezcal. The finish turns a bit harsh and butter on the back of the tongue with some numbing effect. The fruit lingers a bit, though the spices and herbal flavors do overpower it. There's a lot going on here, but a few of the notes never quite land. It's very drying and does have a fair amount of mineral, which I'm not a huge fan of. Ultimately, I guess I'm just enjoying the cinnamon and fruit, even though the rest is not that great. I could sip this, but it would be far from my first choice of drink. As it goes on, I like it less and less and it seems more and more bland. Going with such a high ABV was probabaly a mistake.
