Oro de Oaxaca Mezcal

For generations, the production of the best Mezcal has been a passion of the Lopez Mateo family, which has devoted its efforts to achieve a product that exhibits in its preparation and taste, the tradition and wisdom of centuries of good Mezcal, while captivating the most demanding palates.

Mezcal Oro de Oaxaca, 100% Agave Espadin is emblematic of an old family tradition of quality and passion for the taste. Born in Matatlán, Oaxaca like their creators, in central valleys of Oaxaca, this young mezcal exhibits intense flavor, and the addition of the Maguey worm.

One of the elements that has given Mezcal its exotic reputation is undoubtedly the worm, born in the heart of the agave. Known as a maguey worm, it is added to many Mezcal products at the time of bottling, giving Mezcal an additional flavor.

This bottle is packaged with one small bag of "worm salt", prepared with salt, chile, and a mixture of roasted and ground maguey worms.

This is a great little inexpensive Mezcal.I have read reviews on Mezcal types and different brands ..with scorpions with worms...reviews from the liqour and whiskey snobs now here is the truth..I drink Mezcal because I like it. There is nothing that comes close to the taste of Mezcal... I don't taste the citrus, the leather, the mescaleros' sweat, or the enven the caramel overtones...I do like the peppery bite and the smokey finish you get with a good mezcal. I guess my palete is just not as advanced as some of these tasters, but what I do no is if your looking for fruit get you a bottle of Sangria, and if are looking for a good sipping drink that was called "Fire Water" by the earlier Mexican Indians, Mezcal is as simple as it gets PERIOD......
