Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon pouring, the Lamata Cucharilla Oaxaca Mezcal displays a translucent clarity. It has a silvery glint with a slight viscosity, indicative of its rich agave source and artisanal production process.
The first sniff evokes a multifaceted aroma landscape. The dominant scents are those of green vegetal notes, including freshly chopped herbs and wet soil, paired seamlessly with a background of smoky woodiness. Underneath, one can detect layers of citrus, particularly grapefruit, and a subtle sweetness reminiscent of honey.
The initial sip is robust and full-bodied. The mezcal opens with the crispness of fresh agave, moving swiftly into a complex medley of flavors. Notes of charcoal and wood smoke mingle with nuances of fresh citrus and spice. As it dances on the palate, an undercurrent of minerality emerges, giving the mezcal its unique terroir-driven character.
The finish is extraordinarily long and remarkably clean. It leaves behind a spicy warmth and a smoky aftertaste, both of which are beautifully counterbalanced by a lingering sweetness. A final note of green bell pepper ties the experience together, beckoning for another exploratory sip.
Despite its robust ABV of 48%, the mezcal has a surprisingly smooth and creamy mouthfeel. It envelops the palate without overwhelming, encouraging slow and thoughtful sips.
