About this mezcal

Los Amantes Reposado is double-distilled and aged in French oak barrels for a period of six to eight months. It carries aromas of accented wood, coffee beans, and caramel. This is a great barrel-aged mezcal for those who may be more comfortable with the signature tastes of small-batch, high-end tequila.

Los Amantes Mezcal

The name “Los Amantes” is inspired by the Aztec legend of the goddess Mayahuel who disobeyed her grandmother and gave herself to Quetzalcoatl for love. She paid with her life. After her remains where buried and watered with the tears of Quetzalcoatl, the maguey plant grew, which of course was then used to make mezcal. Los Amantes mezcal is distilled by hand and made 100% of agave Espadin in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. The agave is baked in traditional hornos, milled by tahona, and distilled in copper stills. Los Amantes distillery holds NOM-O01X, meaning that it was the first internationally certified mezcal distillery.

Nose has wet concrete and vanilla. Nice mouthfeel with a flavor that follows the nose. Finish is a bit astringent and has a band aid note that I find in some Islay Scotch.

The nose is incredibly reminiscent of scotch; cinnamon, orange peel, cardamom, sandalwood. Cohesive and thorough. If you’re going to try a repo style, this is a great example.

This was tasty, but I spent most of the time thinking of how this reminded me of Tequila. I actually do like Tequila repos quite a bit. I was hoping this would have more carmel and oak notes, but it was pretty faint.

The nose on this reposado is very neutral. The initial taste is quite watery with typical reposado notes of honey and vanilla. Interesting buttery mouthfeel. The retail cost is quite expensive for what you get. I prefer the Los Amantes Añejo over their reposado. If I ever decided to order another reposado mezcal I would lean towards another brand like Gracias a Dios or Mestizo.

Big round flavors and aromas of toasted coconut, fresh vanilla, and chocolate. Very light and a bit buttery in mouthfeel. This was OK but I definitely prefer their Anejo over this Repo. In general, I don’t drink a ton of aged mezcal or tequila. I drink Joven 99% of the time, but I find that if I am trying a Repo alongside an Anejo, I typically prefer the Anejo.
