Review #1498 | Mezcal Review #86

Distiller: Oscar Hernandez

Bottler: Gracias a Dios

Brand: Gracias a Dios

Selection:

ABV: 43% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Sweet, really potent sweetness. The mango fruit is there and powerful, as is a bit of malty character. Its interesting that the fruit is manifesting itself in more of a husk/skin kind of smell, rather than super juicy, super vibrant fruits. Weird.

Taste: Sweet, thin mouth feel. Honey, confectioners sugar, faint fruitiness. Kind of like malty cereal “fruits” like crunch berries. Weird parallel, but its the best I have. Not much of the fruit is coming out in general, and almost none in a “natural” fruitiness aspect.

Finish: Medium in length. Some heat, not too bad. Lots of pepper, some rubber, some astringency and some varnish. Doesnt stick around too long, sort of malty once again.

Overall: I loved the idea of this, and as I worked through my bottle I kinda wondered when that mango would show up in force, and it just never came. This isnt bad, but its not doing anything crazy for me, and each time I had it I sort of wound up just wishing I had grabbed the Espadin instead.

Thanks for reading!
