"Xicala is an exquisite Mezcal made with 100% Espadin Agave; grown in the valley of Tlacolula, Oaxaca, also known as the land of Mezcal due to the perfect soil, climate and altitude that is needed to produce high quality Mezcal. Brilliant gold color. Aromas and flavors of mocha flan and nougat, dates and spiced almonds with a pink pepper mineral finish. A sophisticated and gently smoky Añejo Mezcal." —producer
"The flagship mezcal of El Buho’s line, the espadin has a light roast and smoke to its nose. Medium in body with pronounced notes of caramel, red apple and coffee, this espadin is perfect for cocktails or enjoyed on its own." —producer
"Xicala is an exquisite Mezcal made with 100% Espadin Agave; grown in the valley of Tlacolula, Oaxaca, also known as the land of Mezcal due to the perfect soil, climate and altitude that is needed to produce high quality Mezcal.

"Velvety throughout. An exceptional drinking mezcal. Each lot of Ilegal Mezcal Reposado is aged to taste for 6 months, using a combination of new and used American oak, medium char barrels. Our barrels are sourced from Kelvin Cooperage, a family-run business since 1963. Caramelized pear and bitter orange on the nose. Clove, butterscotch, and hints of vanilla on the palate." —producer
"Near the El Buho farm in Oaxaca, espadin agave plants that are nearly a decade old are hand-selected by expert jimadors who determine exactly when each plant is perfectly ripened and ready to harvest. The hearts of the agave, or piñas, are then slowly roasted in a stone pit fire between Oaxacan earth and local mesquite for an entire week, before they are crushed under a tahona (a stone mill). After the resulting mash is fermented, it is double pot distilled in the same alembic still that the first generation of El Buho Mezcal producers used." —producer
"Artisanal mezcal with true espadin flavor. Fresh and citrusy notes with a light smoky profile and a very interesting and subtle cacao long finish." —producer
