Top reviews for Vago Elote Mezcal:

— Tastes like caramel corn with a touch or roasted nut on the nose. Lightly vegetal and oily, completely changed my mind on mezcal. One of my favorite liquors ever. Worth every penny.

— This is a perfect Mezcal, its smokey, smooth but still has a little bite to it versus the same brand's Espadin, which is also quite good but lacks the acidity of the Elote.

— Very good bridge. Not as smoky but jam packed full of flavor.

Brian,
Nose contains strong rubbing alcohol notes. Numbs the tongue. Some roast notes. Unmemorable and not particuarly enjoyable.

It is strong but very nice flavor

Nose is medium smoke and grassy, cannabis . Spicy sweet flavor of fruit, smoke, leather and tobacco.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very smooth, yet the finish lacks any distinctive flavor. The smell is quite nutty.

Meh

Ryan,
Very unique!! Somewhat astringent smell, likely because of the high proof, I was dying to know if it would have any flavor with the overpowering alcohol smell. Well it did not disappoint! This was something different the second I tasted it, unlike any mezcal I’ve ever tried. Very sweet taste (likely because of the corn) and then an amazing smoke finish. Very unique flavor profile, definitely worth a try!!

Nope. Too much smoke for me.

That a great mezcal to me. Lacked any real bite or flavor that stood out special to me.

Tasty, but lacking something.

Missing the smoke for me, but the vegetable notes are really fun, bringing a very different taste.

I found this a bit astringent with a waxy sort of mouthfeel.

This mezcal will kick you with a sum heat but it finishes so good I can't stop drinking it.

Smoky , almost like a scotch

Antti,
It is an outstanding, delicate, agave liqueur with a delicate birth & life that leads to a delicate a sweet death.

Winfred,
Over all it's good. A bit of a kick when it's taken neat.
 
Mario
Mario,
I don’t prefer the strong corn taste notes.
 
Terry
Terry,
Just nasty tasting Mezcal. So bad I couldn't drink enough to feel the effects
 
Douglas
Douglas,
Delicious, with notes of roasted corn. Higher alcohol content made it a tad harsher than the others. Just the right amount of smokiness. Sip it neat.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Tasted honey and smoke. Potent, but in a pleasant, well balanced way.
 
Edward
Edward,
Very smooth! Love the hint of smoke.
 
Josh
Josh,
Very smoky. I like tequila, but underestimated the smoke in mezcal. It's like drinking a campfire. Not a bad product, just not my thing.

This is a perfect Mezcal, its smokey, smooth but still has a little bite to it versus the same brand's Espadin, which is also quite good but lacks the acidity of the Elote.

Actually tasted the nutty!
 
James
James,
After trying all three samples from the Mezcal box I have figured out Mezcal is not my cup of tea. This Mezcal had all the flavors in the spiral and was it was a real experience to try. If you have not tried a Mezcal I would recommend this as a starter.
 
Deja
Deja,
Well balanced.

Very good bridge. Not as smoky but jam packed full of flavor.
