This was my absolute favorite of the three Don Amado Mezcals that came in recently. Utilizing wild Agave, this Mezcal shows off how complex (and delicious) this spirit can be. An almost sweet-tart candied fruit nose leads to a clean and complex body of fruit with notes of chili and pepper. There is a lot going on in this Mezcal and it leaves the palate with a long, lingering finish. Although there is heat at the end, it is the pleasant warmth of a drink that begs for another sip.
