A perfect beginner mezcal

There’s a reason people usually recommend the Vida as a starter mezcal: It’s easy to drink. You don’t get the typical ethanol bite on the first sip that you get with many Espadins, making it super approachable. It’s mostly smooth throughout the sip and leaves your palate with a strong campfire smoke. It’s also worth noting that it’s only 42% ABV, which partially explains the lack of bite.

Great cocktail go-to

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.

Good cocktail mezcal

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!
