Just damnit...I had *such* high hopes
Okay, so *legit* my favorite tequila on the planet is Clase Azul Reposado.

The combo of delish caramel flavor + smoothness + that bottle looks so damn cool, is all on point. My friend threatened me to a blind tequila challenge & as predicted...my Clase won big ;P.

Now there's this *nonsense* of the mezcal. Lemme be clear: I *love* mezcal (and also sotol). Smoky + herbaceous + magic. But this was some got damn ridiculous *nothing* special idiocy.

I splurged because lockdown. I'm usually a $200 max on a bottle type of chick. Just on principal. But you know...2020, whatcha gonna do.

Let me be clear: this mezcal was *fine*...which is very much NOT what I'm looking for in a $370+ bottle. LITERALLY could've kept the bottle & subbed out for Kirkland Mezcal and *no one* would have noticed a difference.

BUT...you can't...because the bottle itself is shockingly awful.

Okay, to be fair, the cap is *lovely*, and beaded and quite nice. But the bottle is this bizarre (and VERY porous) black like chalk board consistency, but rougher, and worse, and hurts your hand to hold it & scratches *easily*.

I threw it out.

Ya.

In the *trash*.

Did not even turn into a vase. (Did keep the cap & it's now on my current Reposado bottle...so there's that).

It is *beyond* rare for me to leave a bad review. I would've *happily* become a lifelong customer.

But it rankled me so badly that I had ignored the other reviews on google & went ahead with the purchase, that I thought I'd spare you the pain. If you're reading this far...I hope I did.

On that now...just bought 2 more bottles of the Clase Azul Reposado, so...at least there's that ;P. I do still love the company overall, because...complete win on the tequila.

Now, I just need to find the *actual* equivalent mezcal. Sadly....this is *not* that.
