Oro de Oaxaca Mezcal

Oro means “gold,” though the liquid appears more of a pale straw than golden. Not much aroma, slight green pepper. Smoky, complex flavor, vegetal notes. Pleasantly warm, slightly oily feel. Not much of a finish —some pepper & tannic pucker. This was the only mezcal to arrive with a worm in the bottom of the bottle, which resembles a tiny turd. Kara Newman
