200ML-Derrumbes, San Luis Potosi, Mezcal (Mexico)
Distillery Tasting Notes:
NOSE: Smoky and rich with stony minerality - abandoned fire pits in a damp forest. Hiding under the smoke is pungent cooked agave, with cooked fruit, sweet spice and a hint of fruity sourness. Peppery spice sits underneath it all, with a touch of coal smoke.
PALATE: Soft and sweet, with puckering sour fruit balanced by a sweet and candied cooked agave note. The smoke is well-integrated, as is the stoniness from the nose, giving a background of rich and warming peppery spice and campfire notes.
FINISH: Initially peppery and spicy, with creamy and fruity notes building and then slowly fading.
COMMENT: A relatively austere nose gives way to a sweet and complex palate that’s very approachable for a traditional mezcal. Well balanced and fruity, this is a great spirit for sipping.
