Whether you enjoy these Mezcals shot for shot or in a cocktail, you are sure to find your favorite on this list. It’s packed with several different types of uniquely tasting Mezcals, ranging from alcohol dominators to sweet and silky flavor balances! You don’t have to be in Mexico to find these gems.
This smoky and peppery mezcal packs a punch! While remaining entirely organic in their fermentation, the espadín agaves are crushed and naturally fermented in alcohol. The nose offers a spicy, toasty jalapeno scent that offers a balance of smoky flavors throughout the palette.
Interesting fact: the production begins with the baking of the agave for three days in an underground oven covered with lava stones. The notes taste almost burnt, but with aromas of milk, greens and yogurt. While remaining a little sweet, it retains a lively bitter persistence!
Vago Elote is a jam filled with roasted/cooked agave sweetness! It is a favorite of those who are big fans of “flavors” and not so many fans of “traditional alcohol taste”. You are sure to get what you pay for with the different tasting notes and other elements.
If you’re the type to grab a cocktail at the bar at the end of a long work week, you’ll appreciate this Mezcal, as it’s served in most local bars! The sweet vanilla notes are quickly overpowered by the familiar smoky flavors. It is surely a favorite for mixed drinks.
If you’re a fan of pure alcohol flavor, you’ll enjoy this bad boy. With his strength, you’d think he should have a skull on his front. Very alcoholic at first taste, but slowly finishes with a balanced mix of fruits, nuts and spices. A very unique drink that starts with a punch and ends on a lighter note.
