About this mezcal

Agua Santa Angustifolia is made with maguey Espadin (agave Angustifolia) in “The Mezcal Capital of the World” Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground pit oven with Oak and Pine wood. Once cooked, they are milled by horse-drawn tahona, and fermented with open-air, naturally occurring yeasts. They are then double distilled in copper pot stills.

Agua Santa Mezcal

Mezcal Agua Santa was founded by Carmen Marron, who grew up in Mexico City before pursuing a business degree in Canada, where she lives today. The brand appears to be largely her vision. The name, Agua Santa was developed during one of her many trips to Oaxaca in search of the best Mezcal. One day, while driving, Carmen got lost in the back country. She traveled through the beautiful landscape, and then came across a lovely river, set in a breathtakingly beautiful landscape. She decided to name her mezcal after the river, which was called Agua Santa, which directly translates in Saint Water or Holy Water.

Frankly this is a the very first Mezcal I have ever tried. I am actually a whisky taste note specialist and really didn’t know what to expect here. I was pleasantly surprised by the layers of sweetness on the nose which included distinct cantaloupe and papaya, cream soda and juicy fruit gum and gin and tonic notes with a twist of lime. On the taste, earthy with a creamy mouth feel with a very brief tartness; almost spent mint gum and unbuttered popcorn. On the finish, fall leaves, tobacco, hobby cow leather and crème du menthe parfait. The tropical fruit aftertaste lasted to infinity. Quite delightful.

I like this espadin, and definitely for the price.
I was first introduced to it as a mixer for cocktails but when I tried it neat I realized you could do alot worse.
Not overly complex but clean and balanced agave. A touch savoury, not insanely smokey either.
Worth having at your home bar.
