This is a mezcal of 100% espadín agave with miel de agave (unfermented roasted agave syrup) added at a 9:1 ratio. It is made by the same palenqueros that bring you Del Maguey's San Luis del Rio mezcal and this is the product that is used. It is bottled at 80 proof.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is a combination of smoke, citrus, and sweet, roast agave. The mezcal has an herbal quality along with a velvety texture, but don't be fooled into thinking it is a dessert; the sweetness is subtle and the smoke is ever-present. It would be a great product to use in a margarita as there would be no need to add any sweetener. "
