fresh, clean slightly medicinal at first
My Brother sent this to me as an introduction to good sipping Mescal, it is clean and crisp, tobacco and dried herbs, at first slightly medicinal but a clean finish. Lovely like a young highland whisky.

Respect the artisan.
Being a bar manager and dealing with 100.s of spirits, I can truly say these maguey liquids are indeed the most complex but amazing at the same time. Personally I would not mix this liquid with any other (enough agave out there for cocktails) . Neat is how I would savour this liquid gold.
For a full experience I would personally not mix it. Plus expensive cocktail if you are using this liquid,

A Real Winner
Clean, crisp and light with dried fruit on the palate, followed by phenolic smoke (not unlike Islay Scotch). There’s some salt and pepper on the finish. Nose is medicinal/phenolic/smoky with candied fruits. Insanely smooth and drinkable neat. Abosutely fantastic stuff.

I was in a nice bar in Athens the other night, I saw this under the tequila options in the menu, and I decided to go for it as I remembered that I had heard some good things about mescal and this brand in particular.

I am very glad I made that choice, this stuff is superb!

I had some terrible experiences with cheap tequilas in my university years, and this was my first tequila-type drink after many many years (maybe 15), so perhaps I am being too generous with respect to my score, but I loved it.

Strong but nice
Muy sabroso. Al principio te golpea pero luego se va suavizando con el tiempo y van apareciendo las notas de sabor que caracterizan a un buen mezcal. No es un mezcal para principiantes. Tiene mucho cuerpo y estructura.

Nothing as anything I ever tasted. Complex though harmonic. Never tasted the other Del Maguey but this is brilliant
