Los Vecinos del Campo Ensamble No. 1 Mezcal
Los Vecinos Del Campo // Oaxaca, Mexico
Joining the brand's Espadín Mezcal which was released in late 2018 is Los Vecinos del Campo Ensamble No. 1 which launched in late summer 2019. This ensamble is made with three types of agave: 90% espadín, 5% barril, and 5% madrecuishe. Ten families of mezcaleros located in the Valles Centrales of Oaxaca make up the producers of the Los Vecinos del Campo brand. The mezcales are artisanally produced using locally-grown agaves. Bottled at 90 proof.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"Despite its slightly higher proof, look for a mild aroma on this mezcal, with hints of earthy roasted agave, lemon rind and fresh herbs. Its flavor also starts out mild but then notes of zesty spice, green tea and salinity appear. Quite enjoyable."
