Ilegal AnejoRegular price $112.55
To be designated “Añejo” Mezcal must be aged in barrel for at least a year. Ilegal Añejo is aged for up to 13 months but develops the beautiful “honey” like characters that you would expect from a longer aged spirit. Nose - Oak comes to fore immediately; sweet vanilla and warming nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves. However, the spirit itself is not hidden, with espadin-agave sweetness and soft wood smoke poking out from behind the cask influence. Palate - Big, thick and rich; dried figs, currants and spiced caramel. As your palate becomes used to the flavours, gentle smoke and fruity dark chocolate notes appear, along with gently spicy white pepper. Finish - Long and changing, with fruit, spice and leathery notes.
