Alipus San Baltazar Mezcal 750ml
An unaged Mezcal from San Baltazar, produced by Cosme and Cirilo Hernández using Espadin agave. Bottled by Alipus, whom specialise in seeking out great Mezcal from smaller producers.
Nose: Gentle smoke and agave distillate with a mineral, tinny edge.
Palate: Great mouthfeel, more roast (burned?) agave and balanced with sweetness. Earthy, but not particularly vegetal at all.
Finish: Sugar cane smoke.
