Top reviews for Ilegal Mezcal Joven:

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

— Hands down my favorite Mezcal, smooth and smoky. I usually sip chilled and neat.

— 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.

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

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.

Jay,
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,
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,
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.
