Medium-plus bodied and balanced with notes of sweet smoke, iodine, earth, charred and over-ripe pear and dried white flowers.
Tame aromas of cappuccino and roasted nuts are warm and inviting. Dusty suede in the mouth, it is full flavored with salted caramel and toasted pecans, all riding on a thick wave of cigar box smokiness.
Sweet cedar and grass are pleasantly smoky in the nose. Decidedly savory on the palate there is tons of deeply concentrated charred wood flavor with notes of coffee and mesquite, and a piquant mouth feel that lingers long.
Produced entirely from agave grown in Oaxaca, pit-smoked underground. After a triple distillation, aging took place over two years in a combination of French and American oak. The smoky nose shows off toasted barley aromas as well as an undercurrent of citrus. The palate here is sweet and intense with marzipan, candied fruit, caramel, toast, and lemon curd all present. The finish is long and even with elements of mesquite honey and bits of vanilla bean. There isn't a hint of burn or harshness; this deeply layered mescal goes down easy.
The smoky, earthy flavor is inviting and warm, and your lady friend will probably love it - especially since Los Amantes means 'The Lovers'.
Among the best of the joven/silver category, this refreshing mezcal offers bright anise and pine notes, backed by apple and sweet agave flavors and delicate smokiness. Brisk but balanced alcohol levels make this a top contender for cocktails.

Smoldering and sweet smokiness and cooked fruit leads to a lemon and smoke balance, backed with some oaky sweetness. Big smoke at the end with good acid/sweetness balance.
Lovely aromas of burned sweetgrass, lime, vanilla and clove. Once in the mouth, vanilla is boss with smoke and cloves working overtime to build up to semisweet, smoky finish.
Excellent, Highly Recommended
