"Mezcal is the oldest spirit of Mexico. It dates back to the early 1500s when the Spanish Conquistadors applied fermentation and distillation techniques to the native drink, pulque. Tequila is mezcal’s younger brother. Technically, tequila is a kind of mezcal, one in which you can only use the blue agave, and that today is more of an industrial product. With tequila, typically the agaves are steam cooked in industrial autoclaves and the juice is distilled in large industrial stills. "The Ilegal Reposado is beautifully aged for 4 months in new American oak barrels. Caramelized pear on the nose, agave, butterscotch , and vanilla dominate on the palate followed by a light fruit finish. Velvety smokiness lingers throughout. An elegant sipping mezcal. Aged for 4 months in a combination of new oak and re-charred used whiskey barrels. the fruit of the agave is very present in this reposado.with notes of butterscotch, caramelized pear, tobacco. Smooth and complex. Subtle fading smoke finish. Perfect sipping reposado." -The Importer
