Tasting Notes

The opening notes are of pickeled spring herbs which immediately get your senses perked up. After a couple of minutes the bouquet turns to floral teas like magnolia and chamomile. The mezcal retains its subtle charms on the palate with beautiful and restrained flavors of coconut, white tea, butterscotch, minerals and gentle sweet spices on the finish.

Staff Pick Notes

Maybe I shouldn't have, but I did it anyway. Perhaps it was improvisation or simply laziness...I certainly did not have a bevy of exotic cocktail ingredients at my disposal (even though I work at Astor) and I really just wanted an easy, refreshing cocktail... All the same, I added grapefruit Jarritos to my Leonardo Rezpiral. The result? Instant deliciousness! The only thing I might have added is a dash of citrus bitters, but otherwise I think it was a pretty happy accident. I know I should extol the unique virtues of this artisanal agave distillate, and you may be lamenting the fact that I adulterated it, but sometimes a lady needs a drink! I say support the craft of traditional mezcaleros using local, wild and sometimes endangered agave species however you best see fit.
