I picked this up from Total Wine for about $120 pre-shipping. You practically have to take out a loan, but it’s one of the better espadins I’ve tasted. Recommend.
One of my favorite bars makes all of their mezcal cocktails with Del Maguey Vida, and for good reason. You get a fair amount of smoke, but it’s on the more affordable side, and overall pretty decent.
This one’s meant to be a mixer. As a sipper, I wouldn’t really recommed it. It’s a little harsh on the nose and very smoky. If you’re starting off your mezcal journey, this is an ok starting point. In cocktails, it does shine though!
It’ll cost you more, but if you’re looking for quality you’re gonna get it. One of my top mezcal choices.
It’s a bit higher-end, but really really good!
