I have had many mezcales. This stands above all the rest. The rich smoky flavor fully represents the poem: Para todo mal... Mezcal
Para todo bien... tambien.
I have not found a better mezcal. The smoothness (no biye) and the delightful smoky flavor suits my tastes.
I truly enjoyed this Mezcal, I also served it to several friends that loved the flavor , smokiness and finish.
So we experienced this in Mexico and spent 3 years looking for a way to buy in the U.S. It is the best mescal I have ever had. It reminds me of a fine scotch, only better. I feel like one day this could be to mescal what pappy van winkle is to bourbon. I encourage those who are bourbon or scotch fans to try this smoky, nuanced, and smooth mescal. This stuff is really special and memorable.
