    El Jolgorio

  • ABV:


  • Age:


  • Intro:

    This is a mezcal made from 100% Espadin by master distiller Valentin Cortes and Gregorio Martinez. It is bottled by El Jolgorio. This specific vintage, bottled in 2016, hails from Matatlan, in Oaxaca.

  • Nose:

    Sweet fruits like lime, mango. Pepper, light minerality. More earthy than the 2017, but also much sweeter. Light vanilla bean presence, faint burning wood. Strong hits of agave funk.

  • Taste:

    Thin to medium mouth feel. Light heat, but a good deal of flavor. Most notably, ash, charcoal, beet, vinegar, honey, light stone.

  • Finish:

    Short, but pleasant. Cane sugar, pepper, light ash and rubber, then a hit of mango and lemon.

  • Overall:

    Overall, pretty nice, but a bit more disjointed than I felt the 2017 is. Goes great in a cocktail, as well.

  • Score:
