Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
The liquid is crystal clear, a hallmark of its unaged, "Joven" status. The viscosity is medium, allowing for quick legs to descend down the glass when swirled, yet holding a certain elegance and grace in its structure.
The aromatic profile is dominated by green, herbaceous notes underlaid by a rich, earthy foundation. Hints of pine, fresh grass, and black pepper flirt with the subtler nuances of clay and wet stone, characteristic of its San Luis Potosí origins.
On the palate, Pal'alma A. Salmiana Mezcal reveals its true depth and complexity. The initial flavors are of crisp, tart green apple and fresh mint, which give way to a complex mid-palate marked by vegetal agave, salty minerals, and a touch of umami. Unlike other mezcals, the unique use of Agave Salmiana imparts a nuanced sweetness that is perfectly balanced by its earthy and peppery undertones.
The finish is long, clean, and highly nuanced. The herbaceous, vegetal flavors fade slowly, making room for a final, lingering note of smoky minerals. There is no burn—only a warm, spicy tingle that stays with you, inviting contemplation and another sip.
The Pal'alma A. Salmiana Mezcal offers a complex, multifaceted drinking experience that showcases the best of what artisanal mezcal can be. Whether you are a seasoned aficionado or a curious newcomer, this mezcal will provide a deeply satisfying and intellectually stimulating experience. Third Base Market & Spirits is proud to bring you this unique and compelling spirit that stands as a testament to the rich history and traditions of Mexican distillation.
