About this mezcal

Ánimas Espadin is produced by mezcalero Luis Angeles Reyes in Santiago Matatlán, Tlacolula, Oaxaca using 100% agave Espadin. The agaves are harvested after 8 years and cooked in a conical ground oven, milled with a tahona, fermented in wooden vats, and double distilled in copper pot stills. This mezcal has aromas of sweet cooked agave. It’s flavors are sweet and herbal with smoky finish. Earlier batches of Ánimas Espadin were produced by mezcalero Leoncio Santiago Hernandez.

Ánimas Mezcal

Mezcal Ánimas is an offering from their master mezcalero to summon Mayahuel, the female deity of maguey. In this ritual the spirits of the agave plant give life to the sacred rabbits that, as a liquid spirit, allow us to enter a mystical world.

The smell of alcohol is penetrating. The taste is like an explosion, it starts light and bursts, maintaining a strong alcoholic flavor. It cleans your throat and nose. It stings strongly on the tongue.

Nose – Pleasant nose – roasted agave sweetness. Fairly grassy. A light fresh, grapefruit citrus note.

Palate – Great mouth feel – almost a medium viscosity. Some orange zest bitterness. Grassy like the nose and a bit of woodiness too. Balanced flavor throughout – great heat and no burn. For a $40-ish espadin – this is rock solid value. Sips great on its own and I imagine it would make a bad ass cocktail.

EASE-1018 second batch tried. This bottle immediately became my new espadin favourite, with an unbeatable quality-price combo. Nosefeel improved from the previous batch, maybe left to rest for longer before bottling. It has scents of light, strawberry candy-ish fruit with some spice — exactly the smell of a leather jacket a girlfriend had in 1986. Vegetal qualities, a bit caramel and baked Williams pears, sweet mouthfeel and lightly smoked. Lingering aftertaste that competes with any espadin I have tasted.

Didn’t get the Lot #. Tyler nailed it with the asparagus, celery juice and cotton candy notes. I also got freshly cut grass and some caramel.

This Mezcal is a workhorse, you can drink it everyday. Hard to find something better in this price range. It has the right amount of smoke that Mezcal is supposed to have.

Enjoyable. Very sweet and not watery at 44%, an ABV level that is approachable. I get a bit of asparagus and celery juice along with cotton candy. Bottle 297/1333; lot ANE-01-A.

Funky for an espadin. Smell is on point, but hated the finish. Mediocre, strange

This is my favorite espadin, very smooth and easy to drink. Also light on the smoke and a nice sweetness on the finish. A great choice for new or experienced mezcal drinkers. I Highly Recommend
