- Appearance : colourless.
- Nose : subtle pepperiness with a background of sweet, milky notes. Exotic fruit with a hint of varnish. It opens with animal and farmyard scents, with notes of leather and stables. Then it becomes mineral, with aromas of macadam and hot tyre rubber.
- Palate : the attack is sweet and slightly salty. It opens precisely in an empyreumatic register, with lovely notes of smoke and ash, evolving into liquorice. Particularly “loquacious”, it confirms the mineral and macadam notes of the bouquet.
- Overall : the spices and pepper come back in force. Endless notes of log fire. It lingers with a final touch of leather and petrol.
- 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”.
