Review #1458 | Mezcal Review #77

Distiller: Petronilo Rosario Altamirano

Bottler: Meteoro

Brand: Meteoro

Selection: N/A

ABV: 45% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Sweet confectioners sugar, pepper, lime, asphalt. Charcoal. Earthy and sweet, faint fruitiness

Taste: Thin to medium mouth feel. Sweet cream, confectioners sugar, honey and lemon. Toasty agave note. Some minerality. Heat in check.

Finish: Medium in length. Rich agave, pepper, agave syrup and lemon. Nice minerality as it departs.

Overall: Strong showing from an excellent budget option in the landscape. While not exceptional, this works in damn near everything, including in far too large a glass on my patio to enjoy the breeze. Yum.

Thanks for reading!
