Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In a pristine display of purity, Mezcal Union Uno presents itself with crystal clarity. The liquid shimmers in the glass, indicative of its clean distillation process and the absence of any aging.
A first approach to the nose yields a complex bouquet: crisp vegetal notes intertwined with the sweeter aroma of caramelized agave nectar. Behind these layers lie subtle hints of tropical fruit and freshly cut grass, evoking the natural landscapes from which it originates.
Upon initial sip, the palate is graced with an array of intriguing flavors. The Espadín agave brings forth earthy and slightly smoky undertones, beautifully offset by the more exotic, almost floral contributions of the Cirial agave. This dance between the two agave varieties creates a multi-layered profile, replete with notes of pineapple, peppercorn, and mild herbal bitterness.
A satisfyingly long finish captivates with residual smokiness and a medley of spices. The finish is clean, yet leaves a charming impression of complex flavors long after the last sip, beckoning you for another.
The texture is surprisingly silky, a testament to the meticulous distillation process. The 40% ABV imbues the mezcal with enough body to carry the multifaceted flavors, while ensuring a smooth and refined drinking experience.
