Review: Maria Mezcal Anejo

Share

Mezcalapalooza continues with this mezcal, a 100% agave anejo, aged one year in oak, and bottled at 80 proof, sans worm or other insect.

Maria’s “Mezcal de Oaxaca” is quite unique. Though it offers traditional aromas of smoke laced with agave, the body is something else. Tart like a cherry, it is both sweet and sour and extremely fruity — more than any mezcal or tequila I’ve ever tried. Not sure where all that fruitiness comes from, though, as there’s nothing outrageously different about the way Maria is made. Smoke raises its head again on the finish, but that cherry taste lingers for quite some time.

Is it good? That’s a matter of personal taste, but I find Maria a little too far “out there” for easy enjoyment. Conceivably better in some cocktails, perhaps?
