Review #67 - Single Cask Nation Fidencio Reposado Mezcal

SCN Fidencio Reposado Mezcal




Nose: White grape, under ripe plantain, green mango, nectarine, celery, a hint of smoke

Palate: Quite viscous mouthfeel. Lemon zest, white pepper, grilled peaches, green mango. Reminds me a bit of high quality olive oil, that sort of fruity peppery mix.

Finish: Fairly long. Smoke, a little salt, a little sweet. Very pleasant. At the very end it's a bit mineral, that flat salt and stone flavor.

Verdict: This is delicious. Nicely balanced, the vegetal agave comes through but is really in harmony with the spice and fruit notes brought in by the time this spent in a Wild Turkey barrel. I'm not usually one for aged mezcal, but this is really damned good.

Would I buy this: I would. I kind of wish I had a whole bottle.

Would I order this in a bar: Yes, definitely.

Would I drink this if someone gave me a glass: Absolutely. Get the copitas!

Rating: ★★★★
