Review #1705 | Mezcal Review #137

Distiller: Emilio Vieyra

Bottler: Don Mateo

Brand: Don Mateo


ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Ripe, fruity, faintly savory. Lemon, sweet and buttery, some pepper.

Taste: Light tobacco note, faint wood ash. Tons going on, great balance. Rich mouth feel, bit of sweetness. Proof feels really well placed, warm on the palate but just right.

Finish: Lovely long finish, sweet with mango, pepper, a hint of roasty agave.

Overall: Really complex, well done. Big fan of this expression, and its a really great companion to sit with for a while to take it all in.

Thanks for reading!
