Review #1798 | Mezcal Review #167

Distiller: Tomas Garcia Cruz

Bottler: NETA


Selection: Agave Mixtape

ABV: 48.2% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Solid, well rounded nose. Cream cheese icing, faint cedar and hickory smoke, light citrus and a hint of papaya.

Taste: A faint pinprick of heat, before a wild bouquet unwraps. Lavender, honey, faint lemon zest leads while soft pepper, some orange peel, nutmeg and a dash of confectioners sugar follow up. Faintly smoky, a touch of light umami keep things interesting. Lovely minerality, with a hint of celery on the back palate.

Finish: Long finish, centers more around a bit of soil, minerality and a mild citrus.

Overall: Lovely and complex, this batch has so much going on. My first brush with Tomas and it won’t be my last.

Thanks for reading!
