Named by bar proprietor, John Rexer, in reference to his efforts at smuggling the product to his Bohemian Tequila / Mezcal Bar, Cafe No Se, in Antigua, Guatemala (he was unable to import his product into the United States using the illegal name "Ilegal"). These mezcals are produced in a traditional manner using Agave Espadin, baked in a conical earth pit, using both mesquite and eucalyptus wood. The cooked Agave is then crushed by a millstone and fermented. Double distillation takes place in small, alembic copper stills. The Anejo was aged for 14 months in a combination of new oak and re-charred used whiskey barrels. Some sediment may be apparent a a result of the handcrafted production process. Very Limited Stocks.
Tasting note: [LOT 01 Tasted] Gold colour with some sediment floating in the glass. Aromas vacillate between acetone and a curious amalgam of engine oil, grease, wet tobacco and vinyl that evokes a mechanics workshop. Entry is soft and round with mild brine, candle wax and sweet tobacco flavours mingling. Waxy texture. Finishes clean, medium dry, with a mild green peppercorn burst and sweet herbal fade. An eclectic profile that possesses plenty of exotic appeal. 40% Alc./Vol.
