Nose: Pretty consistent with the body. Nothing spectacular. Smoky, earthy natural.

Body/Taste: Medium to full, good viscosity and smooth. Little to no alcohol burn. The unique smokiness seems to indicate some charring of the barrels. At first, a bit perplexing, but later complimented by the finish. No discernible fruit or obvious spice.

Aftertaste/Finish: Good long finish, with sort of a leathery texture that hugs the sides of the tongue and a pleasurable clean, natural caramel flavor.

Overall Impression: An enjoyable experience, not the most "complex" of mezcals, but very solid, holding together well from start to finish.

Rating: Good. Color not too dark for an aņejo.

I received this as a gift from a friend, who picked it up in Mexico's D.F. I have not seen it in U.S. liquor stores, but maybe I just haven't been looking for it. I had never had it before.

Overall, an enjoyable experience that I would welcome again.
