Review #1545 | Mezcal Review #100

Distiller: Gregorio Martinez Garcia

Bottler: El Jolgorio

Brand: Nuestra Soledad

Selection: N/A

ABV: 47% ABV

Age: NA


Nose: Sweet cream and sugar, melon, pineapple and juicy fruit gum. Thyme. faintly chemical, lots of minerality.

Taste: Sweet and loaded with blueberry. It’s like a blueberry toaster strudel. It’s weird but sweet, fruity, and loaded with graham cracker crust and pepper. Clay comes through a bit, alongside some minerality. Clean and crisp on the back palate.

Finish: Long, fruity and sweet. This tastes so reminiscent of blueberry and blackberry with some faint bakery note. No ash or smoke in the finish.

Overall: Super interesting and entirely delicious. Yum. Certainly unique, especially in how much blueberry is jamming here, which is a note I don’t often get. Big fan.

Thanks for reading!
