Ilegal is a perfect balance of espadin agave flavors and light smoke. We believe that mezcal is about the agave first, with smoke being a subtle accent. The result is a mezcal that is true to tradition and beyond compare. Restrained, mellow, balanced, elegant -not something usually expected from the mezcal category. The aged mezcal has a light gold color and soft aromas-a whisper of pepper, a hint of smokiness, later opening to a big caramel scent. Peppery flavors and some agave sweetness finish with a sharp bite, which might mellow over ice. - K.N.
