Review #1366 – Puntagave Espadin

The Schtick: Produced in Matatlan from Espadin. Bottled at 44% rather than the tequila’s 40%. Let’s see how it is!

Review #1366 | Mezcal Review #59

Distiller: Patricio Hernandez

Bottler: Puntagaves

Brand: Puntagaves

Selection: N/A

ABV: 44% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet agave, some honey, pepper, burnt plastic.

Taste: Harsh and a bit hot. Some pepper, nice earthiness, faint sweetness and more astringent plastic. Weird.

Finish: Long but hot and ashy with a good deal of astringency.

Overall: If this didnt drink so hot for the proof, and was without the astringent plastic forward palate and finish, I think Id like this a lot more. I need to come back to it since this bottle was just opened. I hope it mellows with some air.

Thanks for reading!
