Barril is a special edition mezcal from Del Maguey's Vino De Mezcal series of mezcals. This expression, made from semi-wild maguey Barril, was produced by eighty-year old master Palenquero Florencio ?Don Lencho? Laureano Carlos Sarmiento, using a traditional clay still with bamboo tubing. TASTING NOTES The nose is spicy and floral, with carnation, tropical aromatics of gardenia and jasmine, ripe pear, dark fig, and notes of wet green hay and forest floor. It is round, soft and gentle on the palate, like a caramel, and full-bodied, with a big middle palate. The long finish has notes of roasted root vegetables and umami, leaving the mouth with terracotta, a slate-like minerality and a touch of salinity.
