Mezcal + Corn = Contribution to humanity.

Just like the Rey Campero, the Vago Elote also hails from Candeleria Yegole. But this Mezcal is distilled by a completely different maestro, Aquilino Garcia Lopez. He has a very different sensibility from Rómulo and he unites two of Oaxaca’s great contributions to humanity in a single bottle, corn and Mezcal. 
 
Oaxaca is well known for the many varieties of corn grown throughout its landscape, there’s even a restaurant in the city of Oaxaca dedicated to just serving dishes made from native corn varieties. Of course Oaxaca is also known for its Mezcal but Mezcal doesn’t always have to be clear, distilled with other items which is called a pechuga but it can also be infused with fruits and spices - that’s what Aquilino has done here. 
 
He infused roast corn into a batch of once distilled Espadín Mezcal then distilled it a second time to arrive at a very unique and flavorful Mezcal. Even better, he raises this corn himself alongside his agave crops!
 
This Mezcal has as round body and a nuanced nose. Some tasters immediately note the presence of corn in this Mezcal, others pick up on toasty or nut notes. Either way it’s a terrific and unique Mezcal. Lean in body, vegetal in the nose. The perfect sort of thing to pour for someone as a challenge to see if they can pick it out of a lineup

Kimberly
Kimberly,
WoW! This is a wild taste! SMOOTH so SMOOTH. The taste is new and curious to me. I want more. Not super smokey but super funky and delicious.
 
John
John,
Interesting, it has an almost buttery-like taste up front giving way to that deliciously smooth agave and mild brine on the way out. Exceptionally smooth given the 100 proof.
 
RAFAEL
RAFAEL,
Very fruit, strong finish.
 
Nilda
Nilda,
Nice taste
 
Rick
Rick,
This has a tajin flavor. Has a nice burn, not Smokey.
 
Barry
Barry,
I ordered and received a Mezcal tasting box. This was my favorite. Very smooth for higher proof. You can taste the agave, corn and fruit. Also no smokey flavor.
 
Maxwell
Maxwell,
it was very good
 
Peter
Peter,
Reminds me of a grain silo.
 
Brian
Brian,
Nose contains strong rubbing alcohol notes. Numbs the tongue. Some roast notes. Unmemorable and not particuarly enjoyable.
 
Michael
Michael,
Tastes like caramel corn with a touch or roasted nut on the nose. Lightly vegetal and oily, completely changed my mind on mezcal. One of my favorite liquors ever. Worth every penny.
 
Kyle
Kyle,
Rather indistinct, some flavors overpowering and definitely strong. Not sure I'd order again.

Leather and Tobacco was overpowering.

Agustin,
It is strong but very nice flavor
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Nose is medium smoke and grassy, cannabis . Spicy sweet flavor of fruit, smoke, leather and tobacco.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Very smooth, yet the finish lacks any distinctive flavor. The smell is quite nutty.
 
Bryan
Bryan,
Meh
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Very unique!! Somewhat astringent smell, likely because of the high proof, I was dying to know if it would have any flavor with the overpowering alcohol smell. Well it did not disappoint! This was something different the second I tasted it, unlike any mezcal I’ve ever tried. Very sweet taste (likely because of the corn) and then an amazing smoke finish. Very unique flavor profile, definitely worth a try!!

Tiffiany,
Nope. Too much smoke for me.

That a great mezcal to me. Lacked any real bite or flavor that stood out special to me.

Daniel,
Tasty, but lacking something.

Missing the smoke for me, but the vegetable notes are really fun, bringing a very different taste.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
I found this a bit astringent with a waxy sort of mouthfeel.

This mezcal will kick you with a sum heat but it finishes so good I can't stop drinking it.

Smoky , almost like a scotch
 
Antti
Antti,
It is an outstanding, delicate, agave liqueur with a delicate birth & life that leads to a delicate a sweet death.
 
Winfred
Winfred,
Over all it's good. A bit of a kick when it's taken neat.
 
Mario
Mario,
I don’t prefer the strong corn taste notes.
 
Terry
Terry,
Just nasty tasting Mezcal. So bad I couldn't drink enough to feel the effects
 
Douglas
Douglas,
Delicious, with notes of roasted corn. Higher alcohol content made it a tad harsher than the others. Just the right amount of smokiness. Sip it neat.
 
Jordan
Jordan,
Tasted honey and smoke. Potent, but in a pleasant, well balanced way.
 
Edward
Edward,
Very smooth! Love the hint of smoke.
 
Josh
Josh,
Very smoky. I like tequila, but underestimated the smoke in mezcal. It's like drinking a campfire. Not a bad product, just not my thing.
 
David
David,
This is a perfect Mezcal, its smokey, smooth but still has a little bite to it versus the same brand's Espadin, which is also quite good but lacks the acidity of the Elote.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
Actually tasted the nutty!
 
James
James,
After trying all three samples from the Mezcal box I have figured out Mezcal is not my cup of tea. This Mezcal had all the flavors in the spiral and was it was a real experience to try. If you have not tried a Mezcal I would recommend this as a starter.
 
Deja
Deja,
Well balanced.
 
Samuel
Samuel,
Very good bridge. Not as smoky but jam packed full of flavor.
