Bevvy: "Tres Papalote Mezcal is a new entrant to the category, and one that’s sporting a famous face behind the label: Cheech Marin. The actor and comedian best known as one half of the Cheech and Chong duo serves as brand ambassador for the new mezcal. The spirit itself is distilled from the Wild Cupreata agave plant, which is grown on the mountaintops of Guerrero, Mexico. On the nose, Tres Papalote Mezcal is sweet and savory with mild smoke. Take a sip for more of the same, as notes of sweet fruit and vanilla frosting mingle with refreshing citrus, light smoke and plenty of earth. It’s smooth and full on the palate with a silky quality that keeps things easygoing. The finish is long and friendly, finally turning drier at the end. It does achieve some good balance between sweet and smoke, and it’s damn easy to drink, which should appeal to novice mezcal drinkers. For a new player in the market–one that’s backed by a celebrity and sporting a vibrant, recognizable bottle–that’s not a bad way to go. (2/11/16)"
