Embajador Reposado Mezcal de Oaxaca 750ml (ships as 1.5L)

SKU #1058465

This is perhaps the greatest deal I've seen since I took over as spirits buyer in August 2011! If you've ever been curious about high quality mezcal (not the guaranteed-hangover stuff with the worm in the bottle), but never wanted to pay $60+ just to experiment, we've just found an amazing, one-time only deal. For the past few years, Efrain Nolasco, born and raised in Oaxaca where mezcal is king, has been making organically-certified mezcal. He works with a co-op of local farmers in the small town of San Juan del Rio where the best agave is harvested. We carry two mezcals from him that are 100% organic and the cleanest, most pure mezcals I've yet tasted. Because of our success with these two bottles, he recently reached out to us and told us he'd been sitting on two other mezcals that he made before he was certified organic and that, since he wanted to focus on being an organic producer, he'd be willing to cut us a deal. The Embajador Reposado is made from organic agave but cannot label itself as such, hence the low price! It has some barrel aging, which smooths out the smoke and spice that penetrate the core. A wonderful mezcal that sings of purity. For $21.99 it is a complete no-brainer. Mezcal is an underappreciated and overlooked product, but if we continue to get deals like this, it won't be long until the rest of the world starts paying more attention. Now is the time to indulge your curiousity--these bottles won't last long. (David Driscoll, Spirits Buyer)

I am a fan of sipping tequilas especially those with a bit of "wood" in the flavor. This "tequila" is the best I have tasted since my encounter with El Tesoro Paradiso. There is often a fine line between garish flavor and perfect enhancement, and for me, this mescal is a complete home run. The fact of it being organic is just icing on top. And it is an unbelievable value. Oh, yea - great floater on a biting margi as well.
