MEXICO
$130. 00 Bottle
$1560.00 Dozen
ABV: 47%
Eleven generations of continual mezcal distillation culminate in Don Amado's Mezcal collection, each expression being made from earthen-roasted agave hearts which are, after crushing, fermented together with their piña fibers for a rich agave character. The mash is then double-distilled in small traditional ceramic clay pots. Aged varieties are matured in American oak casks previously used for barreling Domecq brandy.

Other reviews... Clear with a faint nickel cast. Rich smoky aromas of char-grilled pineapples, mangos and peppers with lots of herbs, tobacco and peppercorns with a scintillating, fruity medium-full body and a long, tactile, creme brulee, cigar white ash, and lava stone finish. A remarkable vibrant and flavorful mezcal with a unique, radiant texture. 47% Alc./Vol.
