So good! Very funky on the nose like a sweet blue cheese. Mild taste, very little heat or smoke. Much less funk on the palate than the nose. Earthy, creamy, peppery with maybe a little bit of pine. Complex to the point where I almost ordered a second pour so I could spend more time trying to figure it out. Love the tobala in it. Definitely try it if you get the chance
55% Tobala, 45% Madrecuixe ‚Äì This is my personal favorite of Emigdio‚Äôs releases that I‚Äôve tried. Very distinctive flavor profile that is quite similar to his other batches; but with a certain creamy sweetness which I imagine comes from the Tobala. Emigdio‚Äôs mezcals are tough to describe, but I tend to think earthy, vegetal, cucumber, bubblegum, and mineral flavors. 4.5 stars
55% Tobala, 45% Madrecuixe
55% Tobala + 45% Madrecuixe. Tasty combo of my two favorite agaves.
47% Cuixe, 35% Espadin, 18% Tepeztate from March 2018. Lot E-03-CET-18. Aromas of sweet apples, maraschino cherries, and red velvet chocolate cake. The palate is heavily perfumed, too much for my liking, but others might love this. Give it a try. It‚Äôs a bit grassy and vegetal with earthy notes mixing with salty water taffy. A bit of heat on the back of the palate.
47% Cuixe + 35% Espadin + 18% Tepeztate Emigdio always my favorite. I‚Äôd liked the kick that the Tepeztate and Espadin give these Ensambles, which i think makes it a bit more green than sweet from the Cuixe.
