About this mezcal

Enmascarado 54 is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan. Mezcalero Guillermo Abad cooks his agave in a traditional stone horno and double distills this mezcal in a copper still. Guillermo uses spring water to adjust this mezcal to 54% ABV. This is essentially the same mezcal as the Enmascarado 45, only it contains less water, and is therefore a more blunt, stronger expression.

  • Overall:

Sharp. Clean. Agave vanilla. Not uniquely complex but contains the ABV well. Hay. Par-baked yellow squash. Extra points for not blowing away your palate with the ABV.

  • Overall:

smell is very pleasant and resembles a tequila with agave as the dominant component, but with a hint of smokiness. taste is intense upfront, but has a nice aftertaste that is balanced between agave and more traditional mezcal flavors (peppery). overall, solid.
