legal is a perfect balance between the flavor of agave expandin vivipara and a light smoke. The piñas are cooked in a traditional underground oven and placed on top of the volcanic rocks. The heart of the agaves is then chopped using the tahona mill. After fermentation, triggered only by indigenous yeasts, the must is distilled twice in Oaxaca's Tlacolula Valley by a fourth generation Mezcalero. The result is a mezcal that is extremely faithful to tradition. Ilegal's Mezcal Anejo is a highly prestigious version of this agave distillate. It is aged for at least 13 months in American and French oak barrels in order to increase the complexity of the woody notes.
