For me, the key to a good mezcal is one that isn’t too smokey. Like, I don’t want that smokey flavor lingering in my mouth lol. So, if you’ve tried mezcal before & didn’t like it, we highly encourage you to try another brand! Our current favorite is Casamigos Mezcal, but there are SO many other amazing mezcals out there!
