Top 10 Mezcals
In Spanish, Los Amantes means “the lovers” which is quite appropriate for this much-loved marque.
Traditionally, mezcals are un-aged, but in this expression, the agave is triple-distilled in clay and copper stills, then rested for two years in French and American Oak. This results in a suave, full-bodied spirit showing notes of vanilla, butter and wild florals on the nose. But the palate is where this refined mezcal truly reveals its agile complexity, with balanced flavors of tarragon and other herbs playing nicely with wild honey and caramel. A smooth, woody finish, accented with a touch of market fresh peppers, makes this mezcal worthy of a slow clap.
