Ilegal Mezcal has an extraordinary origin story. John Rexer, the company’s owner, would smuggle bottles of Mezcal from Oaxaca to Guatemala to stock his bar Café No Sé. The drink quickly gained popularity and Rexer was able to find a permanent supply chain, albeit an illegal supply chain. From this, Ilegal Mezcal was born. It has since thrived and become somewhat of an artisanal legend. The brand prides itself on not embracing the industrial revolution of drinks production, and rather focuses on the fact that it's handcrafted and authentic.
 
Ilegal Mezcal Joven is double distilled in copper still from roasted agave and not aged. It has that great smoky body that defines a great Mezcal and really brings the best of Mezcal to the table.

Zachary,
Fantastic buy for a great price. The smokiness does not overpower the other flavors. Would buy again!

Elijah,
Wish it had more of a bite. Not much smoke off the nose but a ton on the palate.

Paul,
Score might be high because this is really the first mezcal I’ve had to just sip on (other mezcals were just shots in college) but this is very good. I’m a bourbon drinker and this is better than most bourbons I’ve had. Very drinkable. Smoky. Kind of tastes like a scotch.

A great mixer and even tasty on it's own. Smokiness is right where I want it.

Nice roasted agave on the nose with a little sweetness. We enjoyed the smoke, pepper and light caramel and tobacco flavors. Nice and enjoyable, we drank it neat.

Anne,
I’m a guy who likes a high quality mezcal and have been known to pay $100-125 for a bottle. For this price, this stuff is pretty darn good. Very drinkable, some fruit. Recommend you put it on the freezer and sip neat.
 
Chris
Chris,
Very smooth with noticeable pepper at the end. Excellent to mix with fruit or by itself. The smoky flavor is present but not overpowering.
 
Paul
Paul,
Subtle smokiness with agave and earthy notes and a peppery bite at the end. Not the smoothest mezcal I've had but well worth the price.

Michael,
First time trying Mezcal for me...smoky and notes of pepper and vanilla, reminded me of a nice peaty Scotch. Really enjoyed this and eager to expand my Mezcal experiences.

I’m new to Mezcal and this seems like a very accessible type. I love the smoky taste but it’s not too overwhelming.
