This is good. Double bubblegum on the nose. A little smoky and fruity on the palate and finishes with a salsa imprint.
The palate is bright, citrusy, and sweet with some minerality and a tiny bit of acetone. It also has that faint fruity funk that several of the Del Magueys tend to have. A solid and enjoyable mezcal with some subtle and unique flavors. In terms of value, there are other madrecuixes/karwinskiis in this price range and lower that I would purchase over this one.
On the nose it‚Äôs slightly smoky with a bit of earthiness, vegetal, juicy fruit gum, mango, and pineapple. Initially the taste is roasted agave/vegetal and peppery then morphs into delicious tropical fruit bomb with mangos, papaya, pineapple, lots of juicy fruit gum that slowly fades away to a chalky finish with a touch of cinnamon. Very good.
had high hopes for this one but fell a little short.i have had many of this brand that were excellent.this one seems muted.it is slightly vegetal and semi sweet.its good but doesnt compare to other madre like the vago edition.i wouldnt mind but the bottle was close to 100.00.for that price, i was expecting more.
Decent, fruity mezcal, that falls a bit short: green melon and cooked cucumber in the nose. Round and sweet in the mouth, baked aromas and sweet, canned fruit. However, the aromas seem a bit subdued. Unfortunately, there‚Äôs a slight disturbing plastic bitterness in the finish. (6 VIII 18, Spitz Bar Z√ºrich, lot MAD-151)
