    I’m a relative newcomer to mezcal, but have to say that after trying over a dozen different mezcals in the $40-90 per bottle range, I appreciate Escorpion Mezcal’s Barril, Espadin, and Pechuga mezcals over several others. They sell for ~$24 per 375 ml (half-size) bottle. I was surprised to see them at the bottom of the list, but to each their own!

    I also recently tried La Venenosa’s Green Label at an east coast (US) mezcal bar and found it very complex, intriguing, and highly enjoyable. Perhaps a worthy addition to your list…

    Thanks for a great book and website!

    El Tinieblo is all of the sudden all over LA, NY and MIA btw – Been drinking it a lot at bars and restaurants. For a while, some 18 months ago I couldn’t find it anywhere but then one day about 6 months ago…..poof! There it was …..EVERYWHERE. Soooo good!

    I have a bottle of La Fogata, sold at the Montgomery County, MD county ABC store. Very nice, smooth. Sticker claims a 92 score from some website or reviewer. Like it a lot.

      Oh, and one other thing, the La Fogata bottle seems to be hand blown, with a green spiral around the neck. Nice.

    I’ve noticed you didn’t include realdejapla’s aztecali in the list of Mezcals. Is it because it’s really just a tequila using blue agave?
