Del Maguey Mezcal
The Del Maguey Minero from Santa Catarina Minas has a nose full of flower essence, vanilla, and figs with a burnt honey flavor and a bit of lemon. The Mezcal Minero is deep and warm, sweet all the way to the finish. One hour beyond the village of Chichicapa and through a mountain pass, one arrives at Santa Catarina Minas. The name Minero can be a bit confusing at first. It refers to an Espadin Mezcal from Santa Catarina Minas, but to old timers it just means a Joven Mezcal.
