El Recuerdo 5 KO Limited Edition Reposado Mezcal 750ml
Recuerdo Mezcal 5″KO Limited Edition Reposado is meant to be enjoyed neat, patiently, sip by sip in a veladora glass, alongside a pinch of Agave worm salt and an orange wedge: the traditional Mezcal ritual.
It is the only Mezcal with five gusanos (gusano is Spanish for Agave worm): as most Mezcal connoisseurs know, their presence adds a silky smoothness to the liquid’s taste and finish. Recuerdo Mezcal 5″KO Limited Edition Reposado is aged 5 months in new American oak barrels. By the way, every bottle is uniquely numbered and only 5,000 have been produced.
Color: Bright straw yellow with gold sparkles.
Aroma: Cooked agave with smooth herbal, citrus, vanilla, chocolate and wood notes along the exotic aroma of the maguey worm.
Sabor: Hints of cooked agave with bittersweet contrasts, subtle acidity and saltiness combined with delicate
sparkles of smokiness. Slight astringent trigeminal sensations with a spicy and pleasingly fiery, crisp finish.
