El Señorio Reposado con Gusano Mezcal
El Señorio Reposado con Gusano is also 100% Espadín but this time it is aged in French Oak. This bottle is given a unique organic flavour through the addition of the Gusano (the worm). The Gusano has always collaborated with the spirit of the plant in its natural environment. Originally, it was given simply an ornamental value. It has since evolved to signify myths of an aphrodisiac or a means in which the plant is able to impart the spirit of the gods into man. Today, the Gusano has a much wider repertoire and it is enjoyed for its taste finding increasing fame in high cuisine.
Age: Minimum 6 months in French Oak barrels.
Color: Bright and clear yellow with shades of green and gold.
Bouquet: Sweet herbal scent yet strikingly fresh.
Body: Medium bodied clean and mellow.
Palate: Slightly bitter notes strong and earthy reminiscence of the roasted agave.

incredible aftermath of deep flavour. very rich bold combination of smokiness and essence.
This mezcal has high promise, but fails to meet the mark. It is intensely woody very smoky in flavour. While that isn't always a bad thing the combination of these dominant flavours in this case not only chase away much of the subtlety, they also makes it rather like sipping on a campfire. The overpowering nature of this mezcal makes it fine to sip a little of, but as it lacks depth it doesn't lend itself to savouring.
