A few years ago, I first tried mezcal at a bar; the bartender said "everyone knows tequila, but mezcal's where it's at." I had to agree. Smoky, rich, and really unique, I totally fell in love with the stuff. And I could get bottles for $15-25 easily!
But now that mezcal's hip, it seems like even the 'cheap' stuff is $30, minimum, and most mezcals are in the $40-$50 range... at least, around the Boston area. Are other people noticing this?
