Review #700 | Mezcal Review #4

Distiller: Ignacio Parada, Valentin Cortes

Bottler: El Jolgorio

Brand: El Jolgorio


ABV: 47% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Doughy, honey, pepper. Fruity, some ethanol / varnish notes. Bready and earthy.

Taste: Medium mouth feel with no immediately apparent smokiness. Sweet honey, bready again, Gouda cheese and pepper. The lactic cheese note is interesting but really nice.

Finish: Short, sweet and peppery.

Overall: This wasnt half bad either, but lacked a lot of real depth. It did, however, make a very nice cocktail.

Thanks for reading!
