Tasting Notes: An herbal, easy drinking mezcal from the Agave Karwinskii family. This mezcal has a bit of kick to it with notes of pepper and spices. Floral, greenery, banana, and chipotle. On the palate, the banana follows through with a hint of cinnamon sticks, clove, and Chinese bitter melon: an understated but natural summoning of the festive spirit and warmth of our favorite holidays.
