Distiller: Juana Escobar Bautista
Bottler: Mestiza Negra Mezcal
Brand: Mestiza Negra Mezcal
ABV: 45% ABV
Nose: Vibrant and unique on the nose, quite a bit of smoke and agave character. Sour fruit, mango, some clay and earth, faintly lactic.
Taste: Sweet on the palate, quite a bit of mango, papaya, honey, some sour fruit on the back palate. A hint of glue and plasticity before a lovely blueberry note comes through. Almost cotton candy-like.
Finish: Short finish, mild and quick to depart but not without a berry/clay/ash component to see us off.
Overall: Overall, quite nice! Enticing, interesting and complex for an Espadin. The berry character is particularly fun, and makes for a great welcome to drinkers – new and veteran, alike.
Thanks for reading!
