About this mezcal

Real Minero Largo is made with 100% agave Largo, which is a member of the Karwinskii family, and is known for it’s high salinity.  The Real Minero Largo is peppery with notes of peanuts and coconut. It’s one of the finer mezcals on the market and it is reportedly the favorite of Graciela, who runs Real Minero operations.

Real Minero Mezcal

Real Minero is considered one of the world's finest Mezcal producers. The family has been making mezcal for several generations in Santa Catarina Minas, and they're known both in Mexico and abroad for creating some of the best bottles available. All of their mezcal is made in small clay pot stills, and almost all of it is rested in glass for several months before bottling, giving the mezcal a much softer character. Outside of creating great spirits, they also have one of the largest and most diverse sustainable agave reforestation programs. With the help of the community, they've been able to rescue several agave varieties that were previously thought to be extinct. The ABV of each batch may vary slightly, so check your bottle for details.

Lote RML-08 bottle 19 /262 Dec 2017, Edgar Angeles Carreno. Dates, figs, and an incredible aftertaste that really does go on forever. I also get sticks in wet snow. The sweetness is complemented by the bitterness of burnt orange and oil of bergamot.

Update from Feb 11 above – alarmingly good.

Very soft and smooth. Light vegetate smell, and a little bit of a mintish taste. Very unique. It’s quite rare, but if you have the opportunity to try it or buy a bottle, DO IT!

One of the best mezcals ive ever had. Deep, full bodied, complex, oily, smokey, but not overpowering. Wish I bought another bottle. An awesome finish that goes for days. Wow

Unique. Smells of fresh greens with a bit of sweetness. Smoothness is unparalleled. Had it fresh off the still at Real Minero in Oaxaca. It went down like water.

Lot RML-05. Bottle 204/616. Absolutely incredible. Dangerously soft and balanced. Aromas of dried dates, straw, and lilac. The palate matches the aromas with strong vegetal notes and hints of fresh tropical fruit that finish softly and hang in mouth.
