Review #1318 | Mezcal Review #43

Distiller: Romulo Sanchez Parada

Bottler: Rey Campero

Selection: N/A

ABV: 48.3% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Not a wild blend of things going on here – grassy, ashy, bell pepper. No ethanol.

Taste: Pepper, wheatgrass, sweet cream. Grows ashy, acrid, smoky. Really powerful on the palate.

Finish: Long, powerful, acrid. Lots of burning wood, faint plastic, ashy goodness. The fruits and sweetness are toned down here completely, giving way to a pepper bomb of smoke.

Overall: This isn’t bad, but it’s not my favorite. Somedays I enjoy a smoke bomb, but I have to be in the mood for it. I’d prefer a bit more complexity and blending on this one to help give that ashiness some direction.

Thanks for reading!
