Tasting notes: Mezcal Machetazo Papalote
Aroma: The first impression is dominated by a subtle damp earth
and river rocks aroma. We can also find sweet aromas of freshly cut leaves, ending with a discreet but strong finish with a touch of cooked agave.
Colour: Crystal-clear, with silvery sparkles, without sediments.
Palate: A deliberate balance in the alcohol level is sensed on the mouth, intentionally and successfully driven. Machetazo is lingering and silky; the Agave’s herbal and citric flavours stand
out, while the aftertaste presents the river rock as the hint that creates a long and smooth finish.
