Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Octavius,
Intense smokey flavor with notes that are complimented by hints ginger, honey and slate.
Del Maguey Pechuga Mezcal
Carlton,
One of the best spirits I’ve tasted. Smoky and meaty with a slightly oily mouth feel, this is better than any other tequila or mezcal I’ve had. If you like smoky whisky and don’t hate agave, you owe it to yourself to give this a try if you can find it.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Doron,
nice and smoky
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
David,
Loved this from first taste. The most exciting agave spirit I’ve tried with smoky, earthy notes comparable to an Islay malt. Yet to find any substitute for this one in cocktails.
Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal
John,
Definitely tasting a bit of that agave syrup up front giving way to some heat and roasty Mezcal smokiness. Not as complex as the chichicapa but still makes a good poloma.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
John,
I had this on the rocks and my god was it complex! A lot going on here, it has a pleasant and full mouthfeel with apricots and almonds on the palette. The finish was long and drawn out with very satisfying mezcal smoke that lingers and lingers.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Justin,
Currently my favorite agave-based drink. The smokiness of the mezcal comes through nice and strong in this one. Very pleasant to swish in your mouth while enjoying.
Del Maguey Crema de Mezcal
Ivan,
Amazing “crema”. Cremas are usually sweet liquors meant for dessert, like kahlua. This mezcal is 10% unfermented agave juice which makes it very sweet and smoky, while still being a mezcal. This crema has a lot of agave flavor, the closest i’ve tasted in a mezcal or tequila, next of chewing a piece of baked agave plant.

Emily,
A great introduction into mezcal. Nice home bar addition
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Rachel,
It’s the best mezcal, I have had my favorite love it alone or with a lime wedge.
Del Maguey Pechuga Mezcal
Kyle,
So incredibly smooth. An amazing mezcal with very deep rich flavors.
Del Maguey Tobala Mezcal
Antti,
Del Maguey Tobala Single Village Mezcal is an outstanding, intense, agave liqueur by Del Maguey Distillery in Mexico - Vino De Mezcal Series. Handcrafted in the mountainous, tropical Santa Maria Albarradas, Oaxaca with Agave: Tobala, a high altitude, wild growing agave, roasted for 30 days, fermented for 6-8 days with local spring water & then aged in oak. It has an intense birth with floral, agave, fruit & smoke notes; while a rich & creamy life adds hints of pineapple, mango & cinnamon; that leads to a long & balanced death with hints of salinity, tropical fruits & caramel.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Bryan,
Very smoky. Enjoy on ice.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Sharline,
Definitely a different taste from tequila. It has a strong after taste. I'm not really feeling this one. It will work in a cocktail but not neat at least not for me.

bill,
A very smoky mescal. I like it quite a it and much better than most tequilas. Adds a little oomph to margaritas and is a decent pour just on the rocks with a hint of lime.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Jon,
Mossy smoke, bit of salt, sweet and smooth
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Michael,
Interesting. Not sure how to rate this. I was like, ugh, at first, but then the smoke hit me. It's my first Mezcal. It's rough neat. I did make a Oaxaca Old-Fashioned and it was amazing.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Tom,
This is a light, sweet mezcal that is incredibly smooth. Still has the smoky, earthy flavor but there is so much going on you have to keep drinking to fully take it in. Hands down my favorite mezcal
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Melissa,
I really found the flavor of this quite offputting. I tried it straight and mixed. Needless to say, I dumped the three bottle down the drain. I don't think I've done that.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
William,
Wow, just wow! This is officially my new favorite spirit. Just enough smoke to be enjoyable without being overpowering and can be enjoyed multiple ways. It’s fantastic neat, extraordinary over ice, and makes the best smoky margarita that I’ve ever tasted. I’m looking forward to putting on my thinking cap and creating some new amazing cocktails with this liquid gold.

Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Jay,
Big fan of the smokey flavor in a coin style Mezcalrita. I add spicy bitters for an extra kick.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Mr.,
Never received the bottle
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Michael,
not a great tequila, in fact, far from it. it tastes more like rubbing alcohol and a fine tequila [which is what i expected for the price]
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Daniel,
I haven't had a lot of different Mezcal. This one tastes like a perfect balance of smokey agave. Great price.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Charles,
Absolutely delicious! A wonderful experience on all levels, intrigue on the nose, very smooth on the palate and a very long finish.
Del Maguey Santo Domingo Albarradas Mezcal
John,
Great!
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Tristan,
It's got a great nose that's not dominated by smoke. Piney notes that show on the palate. Incredibly smooth for a mezcal, not something I would drink straight though. But adding this to some Tennessee whiskey with some lemon juice and maple syrup is the bomb.com!
Del Maguey San Luis Del Rio - Special Stitzel Weller Cask Finish
Antti,
is an outstanding, balanced & creamy agave aged for 124 days; opening with notes of well-roasted agave, red & green pepper, a hint of smoky bacon & citrus blossom. The body has oak-y elements from the cask along with touches of white pepper & creamy caramel. Still smoky & slightly vegetal. Finishing long with notes of smoked meats, sharp apple & a hint of floral vanilla. Only 1530 bottles!
Del Maguey Wild Tepextate Mezcal
Antti,
is a very good, intense, Single Village Mezcal, with notes of sweet & subtle spices that only wild Tepextate agave can add, 'The Wild Thing!'
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Antti,
is a very good, intense single village agave bottled unblended, organic, in a "time-honored" 400 year old way with a spicy tobacco finish.
Del Maguey Chichicapa Mezcal
Mike,
Lovely
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Michael,
Delicious and gave her an extra star because it's such a great price for this single village Mescal.

David,
If you ever wanted a smokey, earthy Tequila... Mezcals are for you, especially this one!
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Joe,
Nice smoky flavor. Alittle sweet. Easy drinking.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Kevin,
This one got caught in the middle. I t carried forward some of the tequila characteristic roughness but did not deliver on the unique Mescal flavors. I may be spoiled by the Fidencio but this one paled in comparison.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Craig,
The nose was heavy with alcohol and pepper. On the tongue it burns with pepper and slight hints of citrus, and maybe gasoline. It continues to burn with the flavors of a cigar and its ashes. Finishes hot, like burnt rubber.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Brian,
Smoky, smooth, fragrant, a fresh take on mezcal.
Del Maguey Vida Mezcal
Barry,
Smoke monster but sweet and smooth

One of my favorite mezcals. Great smokey agave flavor that vanishes to a smooth finish. Great with a mild to medium cigar
