Aromas of tropical fruits and green chiles. The texture is smooth with bananas, lite brown sugar and jalepeno, sounds weird but tastes so good! This is on the sweeter side of mezcal, but the spice balances nicely. D&M Tasting Notes
Our producer of Tobala has offered Del Maguey another rare wild agave – the Tepextate (agave Marmorata) to join our Vino De Mezcal series.
This plant has very broad twisted leaves about eight to ten inches wide and grows at high altitude almost vertical out of rocks in the sides of mountains. Tepextate offers a lighter body with a Bright candied fruit nose of banana taffy and spun sugar. The sweetness carries into the palate with notes of passion fruit and marzipan. A light cinnamon note of canela (organic Mexican sugar) lies in the background with floral notes of honeysuckle.
Founded in 1995, Del Maguey Single Village® Mezcal introduced the world to previously unavailable artisanal mezcal. Through deep cultural relationships with indigenous producers in Oaxaca and Puebla, Mexico, Del Maguey protects and preserves the ancient production processes that have been passed down generationally for hundreds of years. These traditional methods, combined with the diverse micro-climates and terroir of Mexico, give each expression a unique, complex character that celebrates the art of the family producer.
