The wonderful El Silencio Mezcal comes from the village of San Baltazar. This special blend of three agave types, espadin, tobaisiche, & mexicano, double distilled in copper pots - this is "mezcal for the masses". The Robb Report agrees, but this isn't just tequila masquerading as oaxacan mezcal, "Smooth without giving up the rustic character of the drink, with the flavors of fennel, white pepper, and fine saddle leather lurking behind a merely lip-numbing burn." - Michalene Busico ("Lightning in a Bottle," June 2014). The blend of the various agave types provides for balance that is unseen in many of the single varietal expressions and depth of character that's not rivaled at any price point.
