The Enmascarado, or 'Masked Hero', is a Silver Mezcal made using organic agave plants baked in an underground oven before the juice is double distilled in copper pot stills by master craftsman Don Guillermo Abad Hernandez. Mezcal was for a long time seen as inferior Tequila; however, in recent years, higher-quality Mezcals have been entering the market and winning awards at international sprit competitions.
Nose: Big citrus notes underpinned with smoking charcoal and salty toffee.
Palate: Apple wood smoke, lime juice and salt crystals.
Finish: Lots of wood smoke, salted caramel and lime zest.
Overall: This is a salty and smoky offering with tangy lime notes to spice it up!
