DescriptionDel Maguey is the brainchild of Ron Cooper. With the help of indigenous Zapotec Mexican Indian producers from the remote villages of Oaxaca, Del Maguey uses ancient, original organic processes, and the varying micro-climates and terroir give each expression a unique, rich, sweet, and smoky character. Every product is made by individual family palenqueros (producers) in old-style villages.
As with many traditionally made mezcals, there can be batch variation and the Chichicapa is no exception. That said, what you should expect on the nose is for there to be an intense and not shy aroma. Sweet and savory with notes of butterscotch, burnt sugar, fireworks, pine, grilled pineapple, and freshly snapped green beans. Much of that is mirrored on the palate but with emphasis on tamarind, butterscotch, smoky bacon, grilled pineapple, and sea salt. Truly a bold spirit. Lush, rich, fatty, sweet, savory, and contemplative. All while accomplishing the rare feat of being both filling and refreshing!
Cheers, and enjoy this wonderful mezcal! Additional Information
