It all began at John Rexer's Bohemian artist refuge, Café No Se, in Antigua, Guatemala. Opened in 2003, Café No Se became the heart of a thriving expat and artisan community of Antigua. As John's business grew, his interest in Mezcal led him to "import" the mystical spirit in very "creative" ways. His customers took to the spirit and to satisfy the growing demand, he was forced to access less seemly trade routes, hence the name Illegal. Needless to say John has gone legit, but his nose for quality has not changed. I often don't care for oak aged mezcal as the tend to lose their unique character and start to more closely resemble Tequila. Softer and smoother than the reposado, but with a significant char wood/agave fruit character. This does resemble the more rustic of the Tequila's but with the intense espadin fruit framing the oakiness, it really delivers.
