Not a fan. Like the Rustico, this mezcal is sour and has hints of chemicals. It has aromas of damp firewood and tasting notes of sourdough bread and unripe bananas. The sour aspects of this take over. The Real Minero Largo is also made in Minas with clay pots and it‚Äôs incredible, so I had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, those hopes were not met.
Lot 32. I almost didn‚Äôt try this one because I didn‚Äôt really like the other offerings that I tried from this producer, but the bartender insisted it was her favorite so I gave it a shot. I was very pleasantly surprised! Reading the other review on here I wonder if this was just a lucky batch? It was soft and creamy with some menthol, thyme, wet earth, tobacco leaf, it had a long complex finish that kind of reminded me of the sea breeze. I really liked this one!
I love the herbal quality of this mezcal along with the softness. Paired perfectly with the fried chicken sandwich
