Ilegal Mezcal Reposado
Velvety throughout. An exceptional drinking mezcal. Aged for four months in medium-charred American Oak. Caramelized pear and bitter orange on the nose. Clove, butterscotch, and hints of vanilla on the palate.
Restrained, mellow, balanced, elegant -not something usually expected from the mezcal category. The aged mezcal has a light gold color and soft aromas-a whisper of pepper, a hint of smokiness, later opening to a big caramel scent. Peppery flavors and some agave sweetness finish with a sharp bite, which might mellow over ice.
