94Smoke, white flowers, and sweet cucumber show on a very delicate nose. The same flavors show on the palate, with spanish orange peel, candied lemon peel, and black pepper. The agave shines through, sweet and clean, with an undercurrent of smoke. This is shockingly smooth, bite-free, a pure sipping Mezcal that with a long, lingering sweet smoke and pepper finish. Highly Recommended. 94 points.
