I really think the mix works. Tell me...
Maybe lacks of bitterness.

I was going to give this a shot, but I wanted to confirm it's lime juice in the build and a lemon garnish?  That's a bit unusual (no pun intended).  And does "Mezcal (Verde)" refer to the Mezcal Verde Momento brand (mad props for their label game)?

If I had to guess, it means green like "green cowhand" - unaged. Thanks,  Zachary

Yes, it's verde/Momento mezcal. Not too smoky...

I've tried both, even without peel. Just a preference.

You should try first a sip without.

I've just edited the recipe, ratio for rye was 1/5 but it's not.

Just modified to 1/3 but i do not remember right now the exact ratio.

Seems too short for the amount of liqueurs.

I am going to check...
