Excellent,
Highly Recommended

Tasting Notes:

An unmistakable mezcal nose, with black pepper, baked agave, and fresh cut grass jumping from the glass. A beautifully complex arrangement of briney olives, bell pepper, and smoke dances on the palate, with smoke lingering beyond all others. Structured and complex.
