- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : evocative! Unveils a complete palette of animal and farm scents. Precise notes of leather and barnyard. Opens up onto more mineral notes of hydrocarbon. Slightly vegetal, undergrowth.
- Palate : lively, with a slightly sweet attack that immediately opens up onto smoke. Animal character dominates with frank notes of tar.
- Overall : the aromas of the nose come back with a vengeance with farmhouse notes.
- The brand
Del Maguey is a collection of fine, rare and 100% agave mezcals distilled by families in the State of Oaxaca. Each mezcal carries the name of the village in which it is produced. The “palanquero” warms hot stones in a hole dug in the ground, then prepares the hearts of agave which are placed inside and roasted over the heat for a several days. They are then ground in a stone mill in order to collect the mash which ferments naturally. Distillation is carried out in wood-fired clay or copper stills. Del Maguey can lay claim to over 400 years of tradition. All of its products are certified “organic”.
