The smokiest Alipus.

Distilled by youthful maestro mezcalero Rodolfo Juan Juarez, this Espadín reflects high-altitude terroir on an upland plateau irrigated only by the rain. The use of the “del Rio” name is well advised because this distillery literally fronts onto and overlooks a river which supplies the piped-in water for the stills. 
 
This is a very fruity Mezcal with a full-throated agave flavor. It's the fruit of non-irrigated Espadín “grown in sunny mountain-top plantings in ferriferous soil at 4,600 feet.”  It is pit-roasted using black oak. Fermentation in tall red-oak vats is deliberately slow, creating a distinctive fruity richness. This is a big mouthful of a Mezcal that combines all the core sensations of agave fruit, smoke, and sweetness, with a structural minerality. This is definitely a Mezcal that would appeal to fans of peaty Scotch.

Iain,
Nose : Model glue at first but then opens to a "smoky" sweet campfire roasted banana with a sweet agave finish. Lots of flavour! Taste: Rich papaya, banana, vegetal with a hint of roasting chili peppers Really enjoyed it.

Mike,
One of the better, smokier mezcals I've tried.
Steven
Steven,
Good mild flavor. Not as sharp or as smoky as the others
James
James,
The Peat and Smoke really hit you, not in a smooth way. Then Pepper and Beer/Hops dry out your mouth. Got very little of a sweetness or fruit in tasting.
