Gracias a Dios Mezcal Con Pina

The Schtick: This is a somewhat unique Mezcal produced from agave Espadin by Oscar Hernandez, with pineapple and guava added between the second and third distillation. Let’s see how it is.

Review #1495 | Mezcal Review #85

Distiller: Oscar Hernandez

Bottler: Gracias a Dios

Brand: Gracias a Dios


ABV: 45% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet, almost bread like. Malty, musty, sweet. Confectioners sugar, pineapple, icing.

Taste: Sweet, lots of fruit here. Light pepper, pineapple, mango, confectioners sugar. Faint pepper. More bread, malty. Kinda bizarre.

Finish: Long. peppery and sweet. Malty again, which is a note I don’t ever get from mezcal. Lots of icing and bread.

Overall: This is kinda weird. I’m sort of into it, but it’s weird and far less pineapple forward than i’d expect. It’s a cool idea, but not an execution I’m crazy about.

Thanks for reading!
