Appearance: Tawny, Russian gold or Baltic amber. On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass, it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar.
First Impression: Smoky, phenol and and brine. Damn near ethereal compared to most mezcal.
Taste: Smoke, aloe and iodine. Much more understated than any of the others a marked contrast to the 5 year old. A eminently civilized, if tame expresion of a mezcal.
