Review #2017 | Mezcal Review #203

Distiller: Aquilano Garcia

Bottler: Vago

Brand: Vago


ABV: 50.6% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Clean and crisp – lots of pepper, citrus zest. Sweet cream, big corn notes rising sourdough.

Taste: Sweet and savory, there’s a lot of cream, grain, light salinity, minerality and black tea.

Finish: Not the wildest finish, but it’s for the better. Ashy, with bready notes, pepper, a bit of ash and some acrid grain notes.

Overall: Overall, Elote is always a fun trip. It’s unique and always has some additional character to it, but that can make it less of a safe bet compared to some of Aquilano’s other production runs.

Thanks for reading!
