Now I'll admit that a bourbon/rye drinker my reaction to the first sip was one of "I don't know about this." But I stuck with it and soon became appreciative pf it's the complexities. Not going to describe all of the intricacies of this Mezcal as I am not that well schooled in that arena; I'll just say its a different animal than what I'm used to. If you want to try something different and special try this Mezcal. Great recommendation Randy. Will try the Del Maguey Pechuga style next.
