Review #2054 | Mezcal Review #214

Distiller: Eduardo Angeles

Bottler: Lalocura

Brand: Lalocura


ABV: 48.4% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Vibrant, funky, fruity, and a touch sour. Bright notes of lemon curd, honey, baking clay, cocktail onions and big berry sweetness. A wild ride that’s just beginning.

Taste: Sweet on the palate at first. Notes of blueberry, honey, a touch of pepper. Rich on the palate, great viscosity.

Finish: Long ashy finish that blends the sweetness and fruits from the nose and palate with bold ash, ember and some slate / minerality.

Overall: Lovely and complex, this Tobasiche shys away from garlic, funk and cocktail onion and unearths a fruitier side that pairs well with the ashy smoke notes.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 7
