One of several Espadins in Koch's portfolio, this version is made using 7-9 year old magueys (Agave Angustifolia Haw). Handcrafted in San Baltazar, Guelavila's village using a copper pot still, this is generally considered one of the better values in its category. No doubt part of the attraction has been its higher than normal ABV. Described as having sweet, fruity tones and a light taste of coconut mixed with herbs and spices, it's a good choice for home bar.

Other reviews... Loved this Espadin. Very minimal smoke, very minimal burn. Herbal aroma with some slight minty notes. Taste of cooked agave, mild earthiness. Will probably pick this one up again at some point. - mezcalreviews.com

Notes from the producers... Aromatics: Subdued sweet smoke that reminds us of a fireplace, with notes of overripe fruits. It is herbal and in the end slight minty with hints of violets and pineapple.On the palate: Long persistence of baked pineapple with notes of coconut, roses, and freshly cut herbs. On the mid-palate, ripe peach and cinnamon with hints of white pepper and a fine flavor of sherry jelly at the end.
