Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Xicaru Añejo Mezcal displays a captivating golden amber color, a testament to its aging process. The liquid forms slow, elegant legs on the glass when swirled, signaling its well-integrated body.
The aroma is a complex tapestry of aged wood, earthy agave, and a subtle smokiness. Undertones of dried fruits like fig and raisin mingle with a hint of vanilla and dark chocolate, enriching the bouquet.
The first sip greets your palate with a harmonious blend of flavors. Rich, earthy notes of agave are enhanced by the smoky nuances derived from its traditional pit-roasting process. The aging in oak barrels adds layers of caramel, toasted almond, and a touch of spice. Despite its complexity, the spirit remains wonderfully balanced, making each sip a journey through its intricate flavor profile.
The finish is long and enduring, characterized by a warming sensation and lingering notes of spice, oak, and a hint of leather. The aftertaste is satisfying and leaves you with a subtle, smoky sweetness.
Smooth and velvety, the añejo offers a medium to full-bodied texture, filling the mouth with its rich, layered flavors without overwhelming the senses.
