Mezcal Vago Mexicano
Mexicano is one of the rarest agaves, and is in fact indigenous to the area that encompasses Aquilino's farm Candelaria Yegolé. You might say it's something of a local specialty! Aquilino does include a small proportion (10%) of espadín in this batch to compensate for the notoriously low sugar content of this semi-wild agave.
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.
"Extremely pretty, this is all jasmine, raspberries, and oolong tea on the nose, with perhaps just the slightest hint of saffron. Smoky black pepper and tar notes emerge upon sipping, but the overall effect is still quite floral. The nose of this mezcal is quite captivating, but promises a complexity and vividness on the palate that is not quite delivered upon."
