Review #1765 | Mezcal Review #148

Distiller: Noe Garcia Olivera

Bottler: Maguey Melate

Brand: Maguey Melate


ABV: 49.1% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Rich and meaty, paired with clay, a hint of honey, light fruit and a touch of soil.

Taste: Sweet at first on the palate – satisfying, viscous mouthfeel. Cream, light soil, some clay, a bit of ash and tree bark, lovely faint fruity component. Plenty going on.

Finish: Long finish thats rife with decadence – clay, vibrant minerality, a hint of honey and kiwi, soil and crisp rainwater.

Overall: Delightful from start to finish, Noe’s Coyote is an expression that I won’t forget in the near future – or likely at all. This ties in so many flavors I love, with that lovely clay still character without going too overbearing. Total winner.

Thanks for reading!
