Brand… Rey Campero
Category… Jabali from the agave Convallis
Origin… Zoquitlan, Oaxaca
Tasting Notes… A real treat – slightly opaque, black pepper and citrus on the nose, strong mineral component. This mezcal is full bodied with a mouth coating texture that is extraordinary and thick. The 48% alcohol content provides more balance than heat and you’ll experience an intense mineral and spice that comes to a crescendo with i hint of lemon. After a solid 3-4 minutes another fruity note arises on the finish and lasts. This is so delicious that you’ll wait to take a second (or 3rd or 4th) sip. The finish on this fine mezcal lasts over 10 minutes.
Rating… 4.5 magueys
