Siembra Metl Don Mateo Cenizo has flavor that is strongly influenced by the sap from Pine and Oyamel that grows near the agave. While Cupreata is more herbal, Cenizo has a spiced, floral bouquet. Strong nut varieties come through on the nose and palate; principally almonds. The texture coats the mouth with burst of fruits, like apples, and soft vanilla notes. Pine remains central, linking to the terroir of Pino Bonito and the tradition of distillation in the Vieyra family.
Boozy and floral on the nose. Notes of vanilla, menthol, peach, and slight pine. Sharp finish that doesn‚Äôt linger. Tasty juice and good value. December 2014 Lot 11.
Batch from December 2014. Lot 011. The aroma is sweet and almost fruity, but not much of that fruit continues through to the taste. Most of the taste is of pine and sap with notes of pepper and minerals. The feel is not too heavy, and the finish is hot and piney. Overall, this is a very unique mezcal. I like the agave Cenizo, and this mezcal really picks up the pine flavors. Delicious!
