Thomas,
This delivered a hurricanrana to my palette. So many moments of flavour - the caramel sweetness holding through to the finish - picking up herbs, peach and chilis along the way, whilst always fighting off the subtle smokiness that threatened to break through and take over. Intriguing and intoxicating. Will be picking up a bottle soon.

Super rich tequila but not a fan of mezcal tequilas. A nice tequila otherwise.

Mark,
Taste like licking charcoal covered in lighter fluid. Didn’t finish the sample bottle. Flavor wheel doesn’t reflect the Smoke heavy nature.
 
Greg
Greg,
A bit heavy on the smoke for my taste
 
Edoardo
Edoardo,
Not a typical Mexican mezcal: the smoky accent is smoother than alternatives and the fruity background comes persistent as finish. Seems more a good tequila

marlynn,
The nose has heat and floral. Taste is heat forward. Very Earthy, smoky, followed by fruit and agave. Lingering Earthy, smoke, and charcoal.

Bruce,
Intense fruit and spice on the nose. Complex herbs, oak and smoke in the tongue with a long finish, slightly sour.

Smoky and smooth

John,
It’s missing that real smokiness you look for in a mezcal but it’s a perfect blend of tequila & mezcal with a lot of emphasis on agave. Very drinkable

James,
Perfect middle punch mezcal

Antti,
It is a very good rich & surprisingly wood-y joven Mezcal with a floral birth; while a fruity & woody life; leads to a long & complex death.

Nice sweetness backed with some smoke and spice. Minimal burn. Good sipper.

Barry,
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. Excellent bargain!

Jonathan,
Smooth but the smoke was overpowering. There was a hint of spice that made it somewhat bearable. Not a fan.

Robert,
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
 
Sam
Sam,
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.

Mary,
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.
 
David
David,
Mezcals are smokey, get over it. And for half the price of a Maguey, its a bargain.
 
Michael
Michael,
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
 
Van
Van,
I couldn't get past the smoke. It was smooth, tasted like an ashtray.
 
Deja
Deja,
Whoa..

Good stuff
 
Gregory
Gregory,
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.
