Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Unaged and uncolored, the spirit possesses a crystalline clarity that shimmers in the glass. The liquid's viscosity, evidenced by its slow-forming legs, alludes to a substantive, full-bodied experience.
The olfactory journey commences with a vibrant bouquet of green, vegetal notes—think fresh agave and wet earth. These earthy aromas are enlivened by a subtle smokiness, akin to charred oak, that beckons one deeper into the aromatic complexity. Undertones of citrus zest and white pepper emerge, offering a tantalizing complexity.
Upon the first sip, Pal'alma Espadilla Mezcal immediately asserts its robust character. The palate is greeted by a multifaceted array of flavors: initially, a smoky warmth envelops the tongue, imparting flavors reminiscent of toasted wood and dried herbs. This is seamlessly followed by an unexpected but welcome transition into sweeter nuances—think ripe tropical fruits like mango and pineapple—tempered by a slight minerality.
The finish is long and memorable, accentuated by a peppery spice that lingers elegantly. A residual smokiness makes a final appearance, marrying well with the earthy undertones that persist. The ending is satisfyingly complex, inviting the taster to continue exploring the intricate subtleties of this singular Mezcal.
