Del Maguey Chichicapa

Mezcal, 14 Years,
47.8% ABV, $67

From the first whiff, this smells like whiskey, then you start smelling the vegetal agave. The smells are caramel, mild smoke, grass, barley, green pepper, black pepper, bamboo, cedar, turpentine, white grape and sandalwood.

The taste is very green, smoky and hot. The flavors are vegetal and spicy… green pepper, ginger, black pepper, white pepper, dry grapefruit, cedar and oak. Of course, there’s the smokey flavor as well.

This is some great stuff! Much more interesting than any tequila that I’ve tasted. I highly recommend it, even at close to $70.
