Proof66 Notes

San Luis del Rio mezcal is made in the village of San Luis del Rio, which quite clearly lends its name to the mezcal. It is also the home of Del Maguey, the 400 year old producer of the mezcal.

The Del Maguey Single Village brand is mean to focus on particular styles of traditional mezcal made in Oaxaca, Mexico.

(4 out of 5). One of Del Maguey's many excellent mezcals. Not my favorite (that would be either their Chichicapa or Tobala) but still excellent. Due to the percentage, I generally add a few drops of water before sipping. Has a nose of agave, plant smoke, citrus and other fruits, and a mineral element. The taste manages to be smoky, salty, minerally and sweet at the same time. If you're new to the brand, I would get the entry level Vida or the Chichicapa, but this mezcal shouldn't be missed. Worth it if you can come across it! Not available where I live, but I bought this at B Town Wine and Spirits in Boulder (a great store that's currently expanding its mezcal selection!) for $69.99.
