Del Maguey Espadín Especial Mezcal
Del Maguey // Oaxaca, Mexico
This mezcal comes along with a bit of mystery. Del Maguey, believing that this producer is one of the greats, refuses to release the identity of this maestro, the village where they work, or any details about the production of this mezcal. What can be said is that this is the same maestro mezcalero who produces their legendary Tobala. Espadín is relatively inexpensive compared to other agave types and grows relatively quickly, making it a great way to see the terroir of the region and the hand of the master, even if they remain a mystery.

"The nose is big and savory and filled with notes of smoke, butterscotch, orange creamsicle, and burnt sage. The palate mirrors the nose with the addition of sweet grilled pineapple, black pepper and red apple. It has great balance and is very easy to enjoy this very rich and briny expression of espadín "
