Hey y’all! Here you can find my top 10 Mezcals so far. When I hit 250 Mezcal reviews, this will expand to top 25. For now, we’re still working on getting to that number.
Top 10 Mezcals contains Mezcal, and also some agave products that are technically just outside of the Mezcal umbrella. This contains some products like raicilla that don’t fit into tequila, etc. Agave spirits, along with gin, are my two fastest growing spirits categories in the spirits archive. As a result, this is definitely a space to keep your eye on.
It’s really important to consider something when reading these, as my Mezcal rankings are quite a bit higher, on average, than my whiskey and other spirits averages. For starters, there is a lot less Mezcal in the world than whiskey, and it’s also more expensive. When you also consider that it’s harder to acquire, I find myself being a bit more picky – as I only have so much time and income to devote to buying Mezcal. While we’ll undoubtedly see my average start to trend down as I simply review more product, for now, it’s clear I seek out bottles I think I know I’ll like, or are from a trusted producer. Just something to consider.
It’s not a problem if you want to taste along with my Top Mezcals. It’s pretty easy. Assuming you can find the bottle, feel free to check out my Glassware Guide and pick up a clay copita, or a Denver & Liely Glass and get drinking – let me know your thoughts on how they compare!

If you’re interested in having a Mezcal reviewed or added to the archive, please don’t hesitate to Contact Me! I’m always looking for new spirits that I should be considering reviewing, but I don’t know about yet. As a result of the spirit growing so explosively, there are many that exist and are new, that I just don’t know of yet.
