Is their server broken, or is the entire article basically the entire headline followed by endless ads?

Many people remember the first time they ate/drank something. Unfortunately for me, the first time I had Mezcal it was Gusano Rojo. I will never be able to try Mezcal again.

Mezcal that has been government tested and certified will have a holographic label on the bottle.

Tequila is mezcal, it just has better marketing (also slightly more stringent on the types of agave that can be used an a place it can be made.  It is the whole brandy vs cognac argument.

I've had some Mezcales de Leyenda which made the list for less alcohol than advertised. Some of their products are pretty alright. I just drank some a couple of weeks ago in Holbox in the north Yucatán. Had a different type from the same label at Comedor in Austin while eating bone marrow tacos and octopus tostadas.

I was lucky enough to have a fantastic night of drinking mezcal flights in La Paz in Baja a few years ago, I got to try a bunch but unfortunately I got a little sauced and couldn't remember what some of my favorite from that night were, but the guy that was serving us, (as well as all the other staff we met) was unbelievably knowledgeable and sweet.

My favorite tequila going right now is La Gritona reposado out of Jalisco. It's made by an all female company and even the actual bottles are killer. My partner and I save them for other uses every time we finish one. Good stuff and I highly recommend it, for whatever that's worth.

The purity of Mexican fentanyl is unquestioned.
