Miel de Tierra Añejo
Miel de Tierra // Zacatecas, Mexico
The flagship of the Miel de Tierra line, this mezcal shows a long maturation in virgin local oak from the distillery’s home region of Zacatecas in north central Mexico. The agaves crafted here are not smoked and show a much more stately character to the wild, smoky spirits made further south in Oaxaca.
Mezcal AñejoA 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. Añejo mezcal is aged for over 1 year in wood.
Cask TypeVirgin, local oak
"Although hints of agave spice penetrate the decadent nose of creme brûlées and acacia honey, the palate of this luxurious mezcal is a tour-de-force of fresh pastry and golden raisin tones. A true hedonist’s take on agave that betrays no smoke or mesquite flavors and only a trickle of cinnamon candy on the tongue. The oak tones are pleasant and well incorporated, but unfortunately at the sacrifice of any of agave’s more exotic flavors."
