Prose

Xicura Silver reflects Fernando Santibañez’s desire to share a mezcal that is approachable and distinct. Using his grandmother’s recipe, he showcases the Agave espadin from which it is made. The pure appearance and substantial body result from traditional methods used in the production process. The finished aroma is natural and robust; a combination of agave, mesquite and ocote. The unique alcohol content of 40.5% is not dominant and allows the agave flavors to thrive. Earthy characteristics on the front palate give way to citrus and rich vegetal agave notes that finish distinctively clean. A tinge of smoke complements these qualities without overwhelming the delicate balance found
in Xicaru.
