Review #1802 | Mezcal Review #171

Distiller: Juan Antonio Coronel Maya

Bottler: Maguey Melate

Brand: Maguey Melate


ABV: 48.2% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Incredibly potent. Waves and waves of warm buttercream, orange slice candies, paper mache, blueberry and faint stank

Taste: Moderate mouthfeel, a lovely combo of blueberry, vanilla bean, orange and some varnish.

Finish: Long finish, more ashy here but complex and lively.

Overall: The nose on this bottling may be the most effervescent thing I’ve ever smelled. It immediately, pungently and delightfully saturated the room I was tasting in. It’s wild. Super sweet and dessert on the nose, growing more closed and ashy by the finish. So unique for a Cuixe.

Thanks for reading!
