The Mexican take on smokiness. 
 
Grand Mezcal makes only one thing — so far. They make their La Escondida Mezcal the old school way. And they are a new company to boot. But their first offering is top notch. So how new are they? Well, they founded their first release with a crowdfunding campaign back in 2014. People believed in their story and bought the first release of product on spec! No one was disappointed
 
La Escondida Mezcal was crafted about 800 km farther north — just across the state line of Jalisco — it would be a fine, premium Tequila. Seriously… it has all of the elements. It is made from 100% Espadín “blue” agave that is hand harvested and slow-roasted on native woods and lava stones. Then it is crushed under a stone wheel and fermented and aged in oak
 
Sure … there are some bottles of cheap liquor out there hiding crap-ohol under the guise of a Mescal label and pickled grubs. But this, my friend, ain’t that. La Escondida Mezcal is top of the line muy puro Mexican spirits whose only crime was being born on the Southside of some line on a map drawn by a government bureaucrat. So if you are looking for a solid, premium “Tequila-like” shot of south-of-the-border awesome … WAY south of the border … then get your manos on a bottle of La Escondida Mezcal now.

Great Mezcal. Not too smoky and with great herbal notes right from the start

To much pepper

A pretty decent mezcal. Not the best I've had but certainly not the worst.

First time drinking a non-tequila Mezcal. What a treat! Smooth and smokey and a hint of sweetness.

Interesting but not into it. Getting a little burnt rubber flavor that turns me off.
