Herencia del Mezcalero Mezcal Añejo

Herencia del Mezcalero Añejo is produced from exuberant Espadin Agaves nurtured to perfection - 10 years - under the velvety Oaxaca nights. Only then do we harvest them, fire roasting them for days, and running it through a double distillation process. Herencia del Mezcalero Añejo is aged for 2 years and is a single barrel Mezcal. For over 100 years, our family has made fine sipping Mezcals using this artisinal process. Herencia del Mezcalero, our legacy, is a tribute to the artisinal spirit we embrace in our friendships, our families, and our fiestas.

For centuries, the Zapotec and Mixtec Indians used Mezcal in their rituals, folklore, weddings and healing ceremonies. They roasted the Agave hearts over open fires, and this was consumed as a main food source.

The inhabitants of Oaxaca and its blessed Valley, developed an ancient bond with Mezcal. After the Conquistadors came, the indigenous people embraced the new approach of distillation for their time-honored spirit.

Herencia del Mezcalero Mezcal Añejo is a wonderful single barrel, anejo Mezcal. It reminds me a lot of Lagavulin single malt scotch, although it is obviously not scotch. I haven't tried it with a cigar, but I'll bet it would be a great compliment to a nice stogie.

The nose is enticing with smoke and almonds. Initial taste is delicious with an intense peaty smoke and light citrus undertones. While the initial experience is quite refined, the finish has a bit of fire to it, but it's not at all unpleasant. Overall, the Mezcal is smooth and well-balanced.

This is a wonderful Añejo Mezcal. I think it retails for around $60, but I found a bottle on clearance for $25, which is a good bargain for Mezcal of this quality. However, I've rated it as if it was not purchased at a clearance price.

I drank the Mezcal in a small Port wine glass, but a brandy snifter could also work well. The quality is such that it would probably be a waste to mix this Mezcal.

I really enjoyed Herencia del Mezcalero Mezcal Añejo and I suspect that you will too.
