Don Amado Reposado, 750ML
Don Amado Reposado is aged for six months in barrels that formerly held Pedro Domecq Mexican Brandy. This mezcal has notes of fresh lime, green olives, peppercorn, green tea, and minerals. The barrel aging gives it strong flavors of sweet oak and caramel . It’s a bit honeyed and oily on the palate. This mezcal is a great option for experienced mezcal drinkers as well as beginners. The similarities between this and many tequilas make this a good stepping stone for traditional tequila drinkers. The ABV of this mezcal may vary by batch.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:
Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.
