This is a blend of two agaves, distilled in Oaxaca. It features 90% Mexicano Agave and 10% Espadin Agave. The Mezcalero is Aquilino Garcia Lopes, distilled in the village of Candelariaa. It was stone ground and distilled using a copper still.
Vinegar, salt and pepper. Beets, earthy, sour and lactic. Earthy terroir is really prominent here as well as some grass, floral, fruitiness.
Medium mouth feel, some heat. Faintly smoky (ashy) with some pepper. Sweet cream, burnt rubber. Really interesting juxtaposition of smoky and sweet.
Short, peppery and smoky with a faint vanilla and citrus character on the exit.
This is definitely unique, and good, but it wasnt my favorite so far.
