Review #1785 | Mezcal Review #154

Distiller: Felix Cruz Angeles

Bottler: Maguey Melate

Brand: Maguey Melate


ABV: 47.7% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Savory, beef forward, landed with brine, soapstone, pepper, onions and garlic. Epitome of savory umami.

Taste: Sweet at first – notes of buttercream and honey – before a bovine sized hammer slams into your palate. Pepper, slate, garlic and onion, notes of beef broth. Rich on the palate, a bit more balanced than some other Tobaziche I’ve had recently.

Finish: Medium in length, no heat, the savory continues for quite some time.

Overall: Still a beef broth bomb, but better than some recent other Tob’s.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 6
