Tasting Notes

"For those seeking a lighter take on mezcal, this is a good one to reach for. Lightweight and refreshing, the herbal notes cleanse and awaken the palate with peppery spice, spearmint, wheatgrass and mace with a waft of sweet smoke. Grapefruit, tangerine, lime and lemon provide the fruit backdrop, while a zing of chili pepper gives it some heat in the finish. "
