Mezcales de Leyenda Durango Mezcal, 750ML
Leyenda Durango is made by mezcalero Ventura Gallegos, whose family has been producing mezcal for many generations. This mezcal is part of a co-op of mezcal producers, in a town called Nombre de Dios. This mezcal has floral aromas that mix with leather and wet clay. The flavor is buttery with notes of coriander and fruit. This is a display of the agave’s terroir, which includes almost desert like conditions where the agave grows among lava rocks.
