Pale straw hue. Pungent spice, wood, and mineral aromas. A rounded, supple attack leads to a smooth, medium-bodied, exotically peppery finish. Shows very little burn. Drying, persistent finish. Great complexity, with an earthy array of flavours. Mezcal is the distilled juice of the Agave cactus. It has been enjoyed by the Mexicans since the middle of the 16th century. Agave worms, which live inside every cactus, have long been a popular delicacy in Mexico. Every bottle of Monte Alban Mezcal contains a worm.
