Scorpion Mezcal Anejo 5 Year

This limited-edition mezcal was aged for five years in oak. Perhaps the angel took more than his share, because this gave the perception of the most alcohol bite, though it was labeled at a mere 80 proof. The muddy brown liquid has a strong alcohol nose, as well as smoky and spicy notes balanced by a toffee-like fragrance. Very spicy and alcoholic flavor, finishing with caramel and anise, and again, harsh alcohol, so much that it burns. Elegantly packaged in a curved glass bottle with one inelegant scorpion at the bottom. Kara Newman
