Light aroma of sweet potatoes, citrus and flint. Notes of anise, bananas and plantains with a caramel, woody finish.
Situated along the banks of the Rio Atoyac River in the tiny village of Candelaria Yegolé (est. population 254), Aquilino Garcia Lopez is hard at work examining the Espadin agave maturing on his estate. His farm, which is situated over 3,500 feet above sea level, is surrounded by the Sierra Sur mountains and enjoys an intensely warm, dry climate along with a nutrient-rich soil, making it perfect for the maturation and cultivation of flavorful Espadin agave. The estate was constructed fifteen years ago, says Aquilino, by "my grandfather, father and me"(Aquilino is a third-generation mezcalero).
