    Los Danzantes Mezcal

    One of my bonus bottles from Binny's was the Los Danzantes Mezcal Reposado. Just look at what's involved in getting it from the fermenter to the copper pot still:

    Some serious time and labor in shifting those buckets.

    Oh, no! It wasn't free. Just an add on to my Pappy order. I paid full price. Still looking forward to it though.

    If you're coming to the KBF and want to bring it, I'll bring along a bottle of Fernando Romero Blas Tobala.

    Damn, Timothy, that's just rubbing it in. Unfortunately, I can't get away from work this year. I'll just have to live vicariously through you guys.

    BTW, how is the Tobala? I was thinking of picking up the Del Maguey Tobala. Never seen the Fernando Romero. Do you have to go to Mexico to find that?

    Re: Los Danzantes Mezcal

    Honestly I've yet to open it...I seem to have this problem of having too many bottles and not enough time...I actually picked this up in East St. Louis about 7 years ago...pretty, hand-painted bottle...what little research I've done on it says that it's the utmost in traditional...offerings to the gods, wild agave gathered by burro, etc.

    Oh, well without an excuse to pop it, it'll gather more dust likely...
