Mezcal Vago Elote begins innocently enough as the brand's 100% agave espadin mezcal. But master mezcalero Aquilino García López takes it further by adding toasted corn (elote) to the spirit after its second distillation. After days of infusion, the roasted corn is separated and the mezcal is distilled for a third and final time. It's bottled unaged at a spirited 50.2% ABV.
The body is sweet with wood tones and layers of honeycomb, green tropical fruit and smoke. It has a prolonged finish loaded with mint and papaya.
