This is steamed not roasted. Aromas of chartcuterie, olive oil, pickled olive brine. Strawberry, slight pepper and light smoke on the finish. This is savory and fruity. D&M Tasting Notes Jalapeno and salsa verde notes on the nose. Nuanced mineral notes and a hint of chocolate on the palate. Pairs well with cucumber, celery, beet, orange, jicama, lime, and other vegetable notes. Delicious in margaritas.
Importer Notes Mezcal Metiche is made with Agave Salmiana, also known as maguey cimarrón. This species grows in the high plateaus of San Luis Potosí (right smack in the center of Mexico).
The use of this type of agave is regulated by the SEMARNAT (Ministry of Environmental and Natural Resources), who issues extraction licenses for the community and thus the presence of this species, as well as its balance with the ecosystem are guaranteed. 40% ABV
