Verde is a variety of A. Salmiana known as Crassispina and although botanically related to the popular Salmiana in Central Mexico, it is completely different to it's "relative". Agave Verde grows in Durango, San Luis Potosi and Zacatecas. It grows through rhizomes (hijuelos), which is why they're always found in clusters. This Agave takes anywhere between 10-12 years to fully mature.
Nose: Minerals and wet clay, earthy and fresh aromas with something herbal and spicy hiding in the background.
Taste: The clean flavours tend toward the savoury side of the spectrum with woodsy notes that range from crisp pine to fresh oak and earthy sweetness. One of the most compelling aspects is the texture, round, fat and tongue tingling, exceptional!
