Mezcal Verde Momento

The Schtick: Distilled by an undisclosed party using NOM-0239X, this Espadin Mezcal Artesenal comes to us from the Mezcal Verde Monemto brand. Their bottle notes that 20% of net sales are contributed to sustainability projects. Thats about all they say, though.

Review #2051 | Mezcal Review #213

Distiller: Undisclosed

Bottler: Mezcal Verde Momento

Brand: Mezcal Verde Momento


ABV: 43% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet and creamy on the nose, essence of lime, some light brine and a hint of pepper.

Taste: Thin on the palate, sweet at first with a hint of clay funk and a little bit of sandalwood. Peppery on the back palate.

Finish: Short to medium finish. Acrid and smoke forward, a bit peppery and certainly hot for the proof. Some cream sweetness, pepper, lime and a touch of cedar persist.

Overall: Overall, not bad, but far from memorable. A bit acrid on the palate and certainly noticeable on the finish. If you like a smokier Espadin, this is for you. I feel like this is probably produced with the well in mind for bar settings, and it certainly makes a fine Paloma.

Thanks for reading!
