A big push on agave with intensely floral scents tingling in the background.

Smoky feeling that goes hand in hand with integrated agave.

Same ashtray feeling as others feel... Yuk...
Nice sweetness backed with some smoke and spice. Minimal burn. Good sipper.
Smokiness not overbearing, sweet notes but a bit of a burn on the back end and a tiny bit bitter
We liked the smooth smoky flavor.
Perfect mezcal for the price I paid it (~37 €), great for both sipping or mixing, earthy, floral, lightly smokey, smooth.
Smooth but the smoke was overpowering. There was a hint of spice that made it somewhat bearable. Not a fan.
To me and the people I shared it with, we all agreed that it tasted like liquid cigarettes. Perhaps if we were smokers we'd feel differently but this was hands down by far the worst tasting thing we've ever had from Flaviar. I tried is a second time just to give it a fair chance and it was even worse. 30 minutes later I had to drink some Tawny port to get the tobacco flavor out of my mouth.
Absolutely awesome mezcal, great as a shot
Way more flavor than my favorite. Still tho, as a whiskey palette, this stuff is great. Takes a bit to grow on you. But if you can.... let it. Maybe because my taste buds have been road tested by the industry but I prefer the sour & bitter and brash up front but there is sweet behind it which, in my opinion, is the best tone in any spirit. I get so tired of Carmel in my whiskey. So call me bias. But this has character.
I wouldn't pay $75 for a bottle, but for $50-60, this is a great mezcal. If it were full price, I would have given it 7 or 8 stars. It's smooth, but has just enough smokiness to add character to a drink. It doesn't have the bite or kick of a less expensive mezcal. If you're new to mezcals, I suggest this. If you want to avoid smoke all together, try a tequila instead.
Mezcals are smokey, get over it. And for half the price of a Maguey, its a bargain.
This is like a nice creamy tequila with a slightly astringent smokiness. It's not for everybody, but if you enjoy smoke and phenol, this is worth a shot
I couldn't get past the smoke. It was smooth, tasted like an ashtray.
Very distinct flavor. I liked it a lot but my friends didn't, they said it tasted too "ashy" which is why I liked it. Very smooth for a Mezcal.
