Del Maguey Minero Mezcal (750ml)

SKU #1025758 Wine Enthusiast

 Clear color and vegetal aromas of green pepper, green jalapeno, along with black pepper and a hint of smoke and dried oregano. A sweet, fruity flavor at first quickly unfolds to lots of smoke and jalapeno pepper, and a spicy, bitingly alcoholic finish. A bracing backbone for mixed drinks. (KN)  (12/2010)

K&L Notes

This Del Maguey Mezcal comes entirely from the small Oaxacan village of Santa Catarina Minas and is made by Florencio Carlos Sarmiento and his sons Florencio Carlos Vasquez and Luis Carlos Vasquez. This distinctive spirit sets itself apart from Tequila in that it is simply made with water and the heart of the agave plant. Notably floral with vanilla sweetness and a bit of citrus tang, this smooth mezcal will charm the most discerning palates. Del Maguey was named "Distiller of the Year" at the 2011 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Del Maguey single-handedly created the high-end mezcal category. And while their Chichicapa might be considered the flagship, it is their Minero that is the true star. Hand-milled agave cultivated at over 5,000 feet and roasted over mesquite, huamuchil, and eucalyptus wood is fermented in open wooden vats for up to 25 days. It's then distilled in traditional clay pots (the only standard release from Del Maguey using this type of still) to create one of the most viscous and powerfully rich mezcals available.
