Mezcal Rated B+ Reviews Tequila

Review: Montelobos Mezcal Joven

Share

Crafted in Oaxaca from 100% agave espadin, this lightly overproof, unaged mezcal is a classic example of the spirit from head to toe.

The nose of Montelobos is intensely smoky, with a barbecue-like sweetness underpinning the char. On the tongue, it follows through on this promise. A rush of fresh barbecue smoke, followed by intense vegetation — not just agave but green beans, asparagus, and artichokes. Sounds nasty, sure, but it works, much like a plate of grilled vegetables on the campfire… with a sausage on the side.

The finish is mouth-filling and long, fire, brimstone, and deep savory notes. Solid mezcal start to finish, with an extra little kick due to a touch higher alcohol content.

86.4 proof.
