Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
For those in search of mezcal that combines ancestral crafting methods with a rich tapestry of flavors, Don Amado Largo Mezcal is a revelation. Exclusively sourced from the highlands of Oaxaca, this joven mezcal, now available at Third Base Market & Spirits, is distilled from the rare and elusive Largo agave, also known as Karwinskii. This offers a unique flavor profile that can't be found in more common Espadin-based mezcals.
The aromatic profile is complex, with an initial whiff delivering the earthy robustness of fresh soil, mingled with the fragrance of blooming agave. Subtle smoke winds its way through these initial impressions, tempered by a light veil of tropical fruit and wildflowers.
Upon the first sip, the Largo agave reveals itself in full splendor. You’re greeted by a fusion of green vegetal notes and citrusy undertones that soon melt into layers of pine, cracked black pepper, and a hint of leather. The mezcal’s artisanal origin is evidenced by its balanced complexity; each nuance is a testament to the expertise involved in its creation.
The finish is long, clean, and hauntingly enigmatic. Undertones of light smoke, dry herbs, and warm spices linger, leaving a finish that is at once velvety and invigorating.
Whether enjoyed neat or as the cornerstone of a sophisticated cocktail, Don Amado Largo Mezcal pairs elegantly with a range of dishes. Think grilled octopus, rustic Oaxacan mole, or even a rich, charred steak. Its broad range of flavors offers the versatility to elevate any dining experience.
