Distilled using a clay pot in Saint Catarina Mina, Felix Angeles Arellanes produced this Tobaziche for Maguey Melate. This is notably Lot 2 - though I've not yet tried Lot 1.
Extremely fragrant. Lots of pepper, stanky agave, beef and garlic, ammonia, cashew and some soil. Bizarre but really complex
Rich on the palate. Cassia, meaty and vegetal. Not crisp in the string bean way. This reminds me of cinnamon, beef broth, soil and garlic. Extremely savory.
Short to medium finish. Bitter, earthy, meaty and savory
This is someones cup of tea but I”m not wooed by it. It’s well made but the flavors don’t encapsulate some of the things I love most about Mezcal.
