MEZCAL Casamigos Joven is a mezcal made with 100% of the PADI agave from Santiago Matatlán (Oaxaca), the birthplace of mezcal par excellence.
The traditional recipe is followed for its elaboration. In Wells of six tons of land covered by volcanic rocks, later heated by a fire of firewood, the pineapples of algave are divided and placed where they go from four to six days, leaving them to rest and to cool a minimum of 24 hours.
The agave is crushed with a tahona wheel (volcanic stone) and, once crushed, all sugars are extracted. Mezcal is fermented between two AND ocho days before distillation and then add Mountain spring water, something that makes this liquor extremely smooth, with perfect smoking and is easy to drink.
The bottles, in black matte remembering the traditional charcoal with which it is made, are all made by hand.
Casamigos Young Mezcal Tasting Note
MEZCAL Casamigos Young is young, subtle and does not have the nuances of wood of the rested mezcal. At the same time, it exhales fruitiness and fragrance with touches of tamarind and mango, as well as smells of mint and thyme.
