Low yielding, highly concentrated flavours yet very difficult to work with, this Agave Scabra scares many maestros off, but we see a real point of difference here.

    Delicious full flavoured mezcal, equally pleasing on the nose, long finish, pleasant hit of smoke, ive never tried ‘verde scabra’ agave from durango but I guess unsurprisingly its very reminiscent of durangensis from durango, in nose and flavour, with the distinction of having additional complexity of salt, heat and minerals coming foward and contesting the usually prominent sweet mango like tropical fruit flavours i usually associate with the more common durangensis.
