Scorpion Mezcal Reposado - 200ml
100% Agave, 200 ml, 40% abv
This smooth mezcal is rested in oak barrels for between 2 and 11 months.
Excellent for sipping.
This award-winning Scorpion Mezcal® Reposado is artisan-made in small batches in Oaxaca, Mexico, with a real scorpion in every bottle. This version spends between 2 and 11 months ageing in oak barrels of less than 200 litres. Singel barrel bottlings of our aged products ensures premium quality mezcal.
Appearance: Oak amber colour in the bottle. If it was maple syrup it would be a medium amber - It is a beautiful thing! On swirling, it leaves a very light coating on the glass which belies its viscosity. Sitting in the glass it looks like a small puddle of sap or nectar.
First Impression: Smoky and more understated and delicate than the Scorpion Silver. Dry, with a bouquet of lime, citrus, and cucumber - salt, and savoury herbs, and on more warming: char, creosote, some spiciness. The oak ageing even at only 6 months shines through.
Taste: Dry and sweet at the same time somehow, with citrus, leather, dry smoke and lime, hints of cardamom, nutmeg. It is resinous on the tongue and mouth feel, whispers down the throat and then leaves a rather delicate warming considering the 80 proof. It has a smokey, spicy aftertaste like a mesquite campfire. This is amazingly complex stuff- very smooth and too easy-to-drink.
