  • Excerpt: The mezcal has an herbal quality along with a velvety texture, but don't be fooled into thinking it is a dessert; the sweetness is subtle and the smoke is ever-present. It would be a great product to use in a margarita as there would be no need to add any sweetener.

  • Intro:

    "Crema de Mezcal, is a combination of Miel de Maguey (unfermented syrup of the roast agave) and Mezcal San Luis del Rio – double distilled from 100% mature agave Espadin, produced the original, natural 400-year-old, hand-crafted way." - Del Maguey Website. So this is more or less a Mezcal liqueur, which is pretty cool. Priced well, let's see how it is.

  • Nose:

    Light smoke, confectioners sugar, faintly fungal, with lots of citrus.

  • Taste:

    Rich and thick, but syrupy sweet. Lots of confectioners sugar, faint smoke, light clay. Overall, a nice blend of agave spirit and syrupy sweetness.

  • Finish:

    Short, but smoky and rich with clay and earth.

  • Overall:

    Unique and interesting as a sweetened agave for cocktails but I'm into it. I wouldn't compare this to a traditional agave, though, so let this live on its own island for now.
