It’s tough to hold a notepad in one hand, a pencil in the other, and have another hand left for your glass. Taking notes with 33 Jicaras is as simple as checking a few boxes and entering a few basic facts.
The flavor wheel in 33 Jicaras can be used to quickly recall a mezcal's unique flavor long after consumption. For low values of the flavor, fill in dots near the wheel’s center. A raicilla from the coast of Jalisco made from 12-plus-year-old amarillo and verde agaves, double-distilled first in steel, then in copper pot stills, was used for this tasting.
A teeny, tiny amount of real mezcal is added to the ink in each new edition, which is cryptically noted on the back.
