Mezcal Union El Viejo - Made from espadin and tobala agave; plants 8 to 14 years old. More complex than Uno, with an earthier underbelly. Green pepper, cayenne, and mixed herbs, especially thyme, are all heavy on the nose. The palate presents a sharper, heavier smokiness, with notes of fresh-ground pepper, bright green herbs, and Latin-spices that evoke cumin and cayenne. The finish layers in a smoked salt character, with a long, well-balanced conclusion. - ()
