Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal

For Women Only... and... a Few Strong Men! Del Maguey presents another unique traditional libation made in the lush, remote mountains of Oaxaca Mexico.

Crema de Mezcal, is a combination of Miel de Maguey (unfermented syrup of the roasted agave) and Mezcal San Luis del Rio - double distilled from 100% mature agave Espadin, produced the original, natural 400-year-old, hand-crafted way.

As the Five day maguey roast is uncovered, the Miel of a few of the sweetest magueys are pressed out.

Twenty percent Miel de Maguey is added to eighty percent San Luis del Rio
resulting in an 80.6 proof Crema de Mezcal.

This is one of my favorite mezcals. I got in seven bottles of this in for my bar in the restaurant. It is worth the dollars you pay for it.

The nose is a blend of sweet cooked agave, stewed fruit and the tell tale funk of Oaxaca wood. Being a crema you expect it to be either overall sweet or flat and tasteless. This is neither. The initial taste is a mix of gentle agave syrup and smoke as it rolls down your tongue, chocolates, coffee and caramel just hit you. The smoke is there till the end giving this mezcal a overall roundness. The finish is clean with hints of smoke and agave lingering.
