Tasting Notes

"This has a cleaner and less complex aroma compared to its black-bottled brother, the El Silencio Espadín. There are some pottery notes and a very faint smoke. Lots of fruit appears along with some banana leaf. A nice minty profile shows up on the palate and the mezcal is round and soft. All in all, a clean and uncomplicated expression."
