Mexican workmanship in a bottle!

In the desert mountains of Oaxaca, Mexico, Los Danzantes hand-harvest a blend of 12-year old agave’ plants by machete and roast it for three days in wood-fired pits to caramelize the natural sugars. They press grind the agave’ hearts under a mule-turned stone mill to extract the golden juices and pulp-ferment it in wooden barrels with natural, local, Oaxaca yeasts. They even transfer the yeast from batch to batch—just like the Americans are making their Whiskey with Sour Mash or fine sourdough bread—so that the best yeast from the best batches is the one that is used again and again.
It is an amazing, time-consuming, artistic dance of perfection. In fact, the name “Los Danzantes” translates as “The Dancers,” and they have earned that name in spades. They produce a variety of fine Alipus branded Mezcal separated by the family and village that produced it and subtle differences in the blend of agave plants that make up each batch.
The guys at San Andres actually blend in a bit of Cuishe Agave during fermentation to add more fruit and floral spice to the flavour. This pure agave distillate is a benchmark of what Mezcal could and should be.

Ratings & Reviews
I wouldn't pay $75 for a bottle, but for $50-60, this is a great mezcal. If it were full price, I would have given it 7 or 8 stars. It's smooth, but has just enough smokiness to add character to a drink. It doesn't have the bite or kick of a less expensive mezcal. If you're new to mezcals, I suggest this. If you want to avoid smoke all together, try a tequila instead.
Mezcals are smokey, get over it. And for half the price of a Maguey, its a bargain.
This is like a nice creamy tequila with a slightly astringent smokiness. It's not for everybody, but if you enjoy smoke and phenol, this is worth a shot
I couldn't get past the smoke. It was smooth, tasted like an ashtray.
Good stuff
Very distinct flavor. I liked it a lot but my friends didn't, they said it tasted too "ashy" which is why I liked it. Very smooth for a Mezcal.
