Mezcal Vago Ensamble

The Schtick: This is another release of Vago Ensamble en Barro, this time using 57% Espadin and 43% Mexicano magueys. I’ve been a big fan of past Ensambles from Tio, so I’m very much looking forward to this one as well. This is the October 2018 batch, for the curious. Lets dive in.
