Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In the glass, Petunia Espadin Blanco displays crystalline clarity, with an almost luminescent quality that beckons the observer. Its transparent nature is a testament to the meticulous distillation process, offering a pristine visual prelude to the sensory experience that awaits.
The nose is an intricate tapestry of smoked herbs, freshly cut grass, and nuanced minerality. Wafts of Espadin agave's inherent sweetness are layered with hints of citrus and tropical fruit, underpinned by a smoky mesquite foundation. A medley of white pepper and anise adds complexity.
Upon the first sip, an initial burst of citrus and floral notes gives way to a nuanced core of sweet agave, punctuated by herbaceous undertones and a refined smokiness. The texture is impeccably balanced, neither too viscous nor too thin, allowing for an unadulterated delivery of flavors. Its slightly higher ABV accentuates the natural spiciness and full-bodied characteristics of the Espadin agave, without overwhelming the palate.
The finish is notably long-lasting for an unaged spirit, carrying forth the complex smokiness and minerality that are hallmarks of this category of mezcal. The aftertaste leaves a pleasant warmth, rounded out by residual notes of herbs and agave nectar, inviting contemplative sips or preparation for the next culinary pairing.
Petunia Espadin Blanco serves as an excellent introduction to the world of mezcal for novices, while its complexity and depth will surely be appreciated by connoisseurs. It is versatile enough to be enjoyed neat, yet intricate enough to shine in a variety of cocktails. Third Base Market & Spirits is proud to feature this outstanding example of what artisanal mezcal can offer to discerning palates.
