OAX Original Tepeztate


Description

This is a mezcal of pristine and dense body, with intense citrus aromas that develop into smoky and wet earth tastes. These flavors result from the ageing process of 25-year-old plants. There is a warm and refreshing lasting sensation in the mouth after drinking it.
