Tasting Notes

Mezcal Vago is the business creation of Judah Kuper in conjunction with his in-laws in Oaxaca: a family of distillers that has been making mezcal for generations. Vago marks the first time their products have been available commercially, having previously been consumed solely by friends and family. Whereas the Espadin, Elote, Mexicano and Cuixe are made by Kuper's father-in-law Aquilino, the Ensamble del Barro is made by Uncle Tio using a field blend of Coyote and Espadin agaves. It's distilled in clay pots, which add an earthy and rustic flavor to the spirit. It's wonderfully complex and brimming with minerality and spice. Overall, the Vago mezcals are some of the most exciting new spirits we've seen from Mexico in years and we couldn't be more excited about offering them to our customers.

    Wow! This is an interesting and tasty Mezcal. It has aromas of subtle smoke,citrus, herbs, and ends with a light floral note. It tastes round and delicious with light smoke, minerals, citrus and herb flavors. Maybe this Mezcal is not for beginners but should please any serious Mezcal fan.
