"There's a fun trifecta of smoke on this mezcal, with charcoal, pipe tobacco and beach barbecue. It tastes more herbaceous than their joven version, with additional mint, rosemary and chive. Mango and pineapple compliment the tangerine and lemon fruits, with caramel, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. The finish is silky and elegant, leaving a pleasant coating as it goes down. "
