This is a delicious Reposado Mezcal from the Ilegal company. From Destileria Tlacolula in Oaxaca, Mexico, and double distilled by hand by a fourth generation mescalero in Tlacolula Valley. It's then aged for four months in American oak barrels before hand bottling, corked, labels and numbered. This was awarded a Gold Medal at the Tequila.net Awards. There are no additives, no artificial yeast, and no artificial colouring.
Caramelized pear and bitter orange on the nose. Clove, toffee and hints of vanilla on the palate. The fruitiness of the agave remains, to finish with cedar spice and smokiness. Velvety throughout. An elegant sipping mezcal.
