El Señorio Joven con Gusano
The final gem of this Mezcal line, El Señorio Joven con Gusano, is the most traditional of Mezcal’s, known as a Blanco. It is bottled immediately after a two part distillation process using copper containers that produce a clean spirit largely free of impurities. It is rewarded with two gusanos that remarkably do not alter in any way the transparent clean color that it has. A sudden warmth of astringency with tones of grassiness and oregano like bitterness engulf the mouth but a lingering sweetness sometimes reminiscent of a fresh peach surprises your taste buds as you begin to realize this mezcal holds the balance of acidity and bitterness.
Age: Bottled immediately after distillation.
Color: Bright luminous crystalline with shades of silver and ice blue.
Bouquet: Intense herbal with touches of mint and after thought of smokiness.
