With Xicaru Silver 102° we honor the tradition of master mezcaleros, who prize the concentrated characteristics of high-proof mezcals. Selecting a smaller cut from the heart of the distillate gives Xicaru Silver 102° a bolder, more robust flavor.
Xicaru Silver 102° differs from Xicaru Silver in the way it is distilled. A narrower cut is taken from the heart, where the alcohol, smoke, and maguey are more concentrated. Xicaru Silver and Xicaru Silver 102° both utilize traditional mezcal production methods passed down from generation to generation.
The crisp, high proof of Xicaru Silver 102° asserts itself in all aspects, dominating on the nose and palate before gradually softening to the rich, smoky, and vegetal notes of traditionally produced, artisanal mezcal. The finish is warm and lasting.
