Hailing from the Rio Hormiga Colorada valley of Mexico, Sombra is a Mezcal (kind of like Tequila but more rustic) that is made from the Espadin Agave which is a cactus-like plant that is actually closer to a lily. The central stalk of the Agave is baked underground to convert the starch into sugars then the juice is fermented and distilled, finally it is bottled as a Silver or un-aged Mezcal. The Mezcal style is herbal, vegetal and, due to the baking of the Agave, smoky.

This smoky mezcal is reminiscent of peated Scotch. It opens with fleeting vanilla-almond sweetness and quickly accelerates into a smoky midpalate, finishing with menthol, black pepper and an earthy hint of dark chocolate. Sip or mix. Best Buy.
