Espiritu Lauro Mezcal
Espíritu Lauro Anejo is an aged version of their Joven ensamble. Almost all other Anejo mezcal, is made with agave Espadin only. This mezcal is made with 70% agave Espadin, which takes 6-9 years to mature, and 30% agave Karwinskii, which takes 15 – 17 years to mature. After distillation, this mezcal is aged in American White Oak barrels for fourteen months before being bottled.
Bottled 1/9/2014. Lot 014-ECO. I bought this bottle when I was making the switch from tequila to mezcal. Today, it reminds me of a lot of the good tequila I used to drink. Coming in at 40% ABV and aged in oak this mezcal is smooth and easy to drink. I recommend this one for anyone who is new to mezcal. It is slightly smokey but will not overwhelm you .
