We tasted Del Maguey Minero at Meeting No. 23 on April 24, 2014. We rated it very highly at 3.21 out of 5. Del Maguey Minero ranks 12th overall in Mezcal. At a street price of $83, this spirit is on the pricier side given the our rating of it.

Nose of hay, barnyard or petting zoo combined with sugar water. Sweet, sweet earth. Mint, lime. Almost a fizzy quality. Fantastic - I can't get enough of this. This will be added to the cabinet in short order.

Bright and peppery. Slight bit of cardamon at the finish. A swim in the ocean with a finish that places you at a fire on the beach.

Spicy smell, complex aromas. First sip is light on the lips, subsides after a moment, then the power hits again in your mouth - sweet flavors then take over. Very much like this one.

Nose of vinegar, peat, charcoal. Fruity, apple, smoke, and a light late bit that slowly spreads across the tongue and upper palate.

Nose: Vinegar, mineral earth, like granite. Taste: First entry - acidic, vegetative, slightly sour wine. Finish: Oolong tea. Tart. Balance: Bright, thin. Overall: Interesting in its acidity.
