LOS DANZANTES JOVEN
REGION: MEXICO (OAXACA)
Lovers of pungent, smoky spirits will want to explore this range of artisanal mezcal, originally bottled by Jaime and Gustavo Munoz as the house pour for their restaurant, Los Danzantes. This smoky ‘young’ mezcal could very well be Oaxaca’s answer to Laphroaig, bracing yet sweet, crisp yet moreish, and with a medicine chest full of band-aids and gauze. Incredibly smooth for an un-aged spirit at 43% abv, there is a purity of flavour that grows on you while waking you up at the same time – a keeper.
