About this mezcal

Los Nahuales Espadin also goes by the name Los Danzantes Espadin, depending on where you live. It’s traditionally made with farm-grown agave Espadin. The cooked agave is ground in a Chilean tahona that is pulled by a horse. It’s fermented in pine tubs, slowly and naturally (without accelerators), and with classical music to aid the cycle of microorganisms.  It’s double-distilled in copper stills.

Los Nahuales Mezcal

Los Nahuales mezcal is distilled at the Déstileria Los Danzantes in Santiago Matatlan, the world capital of mezcal, south of Oaxaca city. The mezcals are branded as Los Nahuales in the USA due to trademark issues. Though the mezcaleros behind this mezcal have been making it for generations, the Los Danzantes brand has been around since 1997.

A surprising find in Vanuatu duty free! There’s sugar notes on the first sip with a warm smoky flavour wandering around before the 43% makes itself felt, but not too harsh. The agave sugars remain as some warmer caramel/vanilla flavours hint. I enjoy a mezcal straight where the flavours stay warm to the palette but with ice there’s a subtle change in texture and smoothness which is enjoyable and adds to the flavours.

Lot 013916. Bottle 047/910. 47% ABV. Not my jam, but might work for others. There are some light orange peel aromas, but overall it was hot, chemically, and harsh. It tasted like it was created in lab. Perhaps this was just an odd batch or maybe it’s better meant for cocktails.
