Don Amado Largo

Don Amado Largo (Karwinskii) is somewhat smokey with lots of candied notes, a creamy mouthfeel, and slight hint of spice.

About this mezcal

Don Amado Largo is made with maguey Largo, which means “long” in Spanish. This maguey is a member of the agave Karwinskii family, and has a nuanced spiciness and mild roasted finish. This mezcal is on the fruitier side with somewhat candied flavor notes, a creamy mouthfeel, and just a hint of spice.

Don Amado Mezcal

Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.

I love the herbal quality of this mezcal along with the softness. Paired perfectly with the fried chicken sandwich

Lot 32. I almost didn’t try this one because I didn’t really like the other offerings that I tried from this producer, but the bartender insisted it was her favorite so I gave it a shot. I was very pleasantly surprised! Reading the other review on here I wonder if this was just a lucky batch? It was soft and creamy with some menthol, thyme, wet earth, tobacco leaf, it had a long complex finish that kind of reminded me of the sea breeze. I really liked this one!

Lot 47. Aromas of clay, wet leaves, and bit of plastic and rubber. The palate is very earthy up front with big notes of clay and terre rouge, but that quickly fades into a thinner middle and quick finish that has hints of corn husk. I still don’t love this new batch, but it seems like an improvement on what I tasted previously. 3 stars.

Batch from 3yrs ago (didn’t catch batch number unfortunately). Rated this at 2 stars. Not a fan. Like the Rustico, this mezcal is sour and has hints of chemicals. It has aromas of damp firewood and tasting notes of sourdough bread and unripe bananas. The sour aspects of this take over. The Real Minero Largo is also made in Minas with clay pots and it’s incredible, so I had high hopes for this one. Unfortunately, those hopes were not met.
