For fifteen years the producer of Del Maguey Tobala had asked Del Maguey to bring in his mezcal made from Espadin, the genetic mother of the blue agave. At the insistence of a group of very special friends – dedicated Connoisseurs, Educators and “Cantineros” – They made the first run just for them.
That first release consisted of only 330 bottles that were given to Del Maguey family in New York, Boston and California. Receiving 96 points and the Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2016, Especial finishes with a saline quality that leaves you salivating for more.
TASTE: A pleasant surprise following the initial nose. Sweet fruit coats the tongue, notes of pineapple and orange, as a subtle hint of smoke gently reminds you of nights by the campfire.
ENJOY: Sipped slowly. Take your time and “kiss” this mezcal. Look past the alcohol and unlock a hidden world of agave goodness
