Review #2001 | Mezcal Review #199

Distiller: Eduardo Angeles

Bottler: Lalocura

Brand: Lalocura


ABV: 47.7% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Fresh melon, wet clay, faint lactic note, strawberry and lime. Fruity, musty, fun.

Taste: Rich on the palate, quite a mouthfeel. So much clay, salinity, earthiness. Bold peppercorn notes play along with light lemon, melon, some clay.

Finish: Long finish, powerfully earthy with notes of lemon curd, pepper, salt, clay, hint of ash.

Overall: Powerful as always, Lalocura delivers a great look at an ensamble we don’t always see, and the powerful transition from the fruity nose to an earthy palate is captivating and fun to dig through.

Thanks for reading!
