Not really fan of Vida... despite the fact that higher Del Maguey offerings are excellent. This has a very artificial fruit candy with prominent rubber taste to it that i just can't stand when sipped. Only way i found a way of drinking this is mixing with mango juice, which is pretty tasty and unique.

Wow! Finally broke down and bought a bottle of quality mescal and Jackpot! Almost smoky as an Islay scotch. Earthy, spicy, just so many things going on I couldn't believe the first sip. It was so good that my uncle ran out to buy some after his first glass only to find out I had bought the last bottle so he bought 2 of the more expensive offerings. All three mezcals I have tried from Del Maguey are excellent! Buy it if you can find it!

I hear you! Drinking my first good mezcal was a revelation. I think any scotch drinker would probably enjoy these spirits. It's amazing to me how good these spirits are compared to how unknown they are.

(4 out of 5). This is great for an introductory spirit- $35 gets you a high quality and slightly above average abv mezcal. If you've never tried mezcal and and are curious, I can't think of a better one to seek out. Plus, Del Maguey only gets better as you move up! This isn't as complex as many of their other offerings, but has a very vibrant and "green" smell of plant smoke and garden vegetables, which continues while sipping. If you like this, check out their Chichicapa.
