Tasting Notes

This artisanal mezcal hand crafted by mezcalero Cosme Hernandez is made from Espadín agave plants harvested from very high altitudes, fermented in traditional pine wood vats, and double distilled in tiny pot stills. The perfect clarity of the spirit foreshadows the purity in the aromas and flavors, of which there are many. Coming in waves are notes of clean white smoke, green peppercorn, key lime, minerals, wet stone, aloe, sweet nectar and more. Sadly, there is no more of this to be had and once this sells out it is likely gone for good. Get it while it lasts.

Staff Pick Notes

Here is a mezcal that demonstrates how pleasurable deception can be. Classic and doesn't hold anything back. On the nose, you get the impression of a really smoky, peppery, charred, savory mezcal, and it is, but that's not all. When you finally decide to stop delighting in the robust aromatics of this mezcal and decide to taste it, you'll find that things are not exactly as they seemed. Floral and subtle through the mid-palate, this spirit transitions to a bold, smoky, peppery finish. A wonderful and well-priced mezcal that would delight a novice and an old pro like me!
