Los Danzantes (Los Nahuales) Anejo

Dec 4, 2021

It smelled of the burnt rubber slightly but did not taste like it. It was fairly smooth and drinkable. At the Zarape Restaurant, Wyndham Hotel, Playa del Carmen, Quintana Roo. 380 pesos a shot.

Alipus San Luis

Dec 31, 2019

The smoothest Joven I’ve tried yet. It’s got some heat. No burnt rubber taste. It’s amazing as mezcal goes. I mixed it in a cocktail from Ilegal’s website with Tonic, cucumber and grapefruit peel. It was okay but the traditional way is really good. Sipping from a copita is the best to me. Highly recommend the San Luis from Alipus. SLR004/19 Bot 438/1180

Gracias a Dios Pechuga

I really enjoyed this Pechuga at “The Black Widow” in Dallas. It was very smooth and the fruits and turkey adjuncts were contributors to the great taste. It has a touch of heat too. I tracked a bottle down and purchased it. Well worth the price.

Del Maguey VIDA

Jul 14, 2019

Made for mixing and experimenting I believe it excels in it’s endeavor to introduce people to Mezcal. My first Mezcal cocktail included the Vida and it sparked an interest for me. Ron Cooper completed that journey when I read his book “Finding Mezcal”.

This is smooth and most authentic to me. Makes an excellent Martini. Goes well with the jalapeño stuffed olive and pickled quail egg. I should teach that to Tim Love. My first mezcal cocktail was at Lonesome Dove, Ft. Worth.

Flor del Desierto Cascabel

This was smooth and different but I didn’t get the meat part of it and sotol seems a taste lighter than her cousin. Overall I would buy it for my martini I make with a jalapeno stuffed olive with a couple of table spoons of brine and a pickled quail egg on a toothpick/skewer.

Zignum Anejo

Jul 14, 2019

It lacked some Mezcal smokiness but was rather smooth and a touch sweet. But it was more like anejo Tequila than Mezcal. 750 pesos in Puerto Vallarta. 6/19.

Ilegal Anejo

Jul 14, 2019

So far this is my favorite. It’s expensive but I love it. I had the Reposado and liked it then gambled on the anejo and it won. I haven’t cared much for Anejo Tequilas except El Jimador with a nice price point. Found that at Angler’s Inn, Lake El Salto, México.

Mezcal Local

Jul 14, 2019

I really thought this Mezcal was smooth and had some fruit flavors. At Tuna Azul, Puerto Vallarta. 07/02/2021 Bought a bottle at Spec’s in Texas and could not confirm this is the same as what I had in PV, Mexico. Originally labeled Espadin and Pechuga this is labeled different. Hot, sweet and smokey. This agave angustifolia has to be different. It starts with a hot bite, and then I get sweet, smokey, alcohol flavors. Some are fruity. No terrible aftertaste so I like it well enough for traditional sipping.

Del Maguey Iberico

I thought this was very spicy. Too spicy for me. I was glad I got to try it before buying a bottle. $40 a shot.
