Don Amado Mezcal ENSAMBLE TOBALÁ & BICUISHE 750ML - On the nose, there are aromas of summer stonefruit, soft tea rose, and toasted red chile peppers. The exotic tastes of Earl Grey tea, dried orange peel, candied mango, cinnamon, and faint woodiness lead to a smooth, jammy finish with a lingering hint of black licorice.

  • Master Distiller: Germaín Arellanes Arellanes
  • Made 100% from a blend of Tobalá and Bicuishe maguey grown at 4,800' in the town of San Pablo Apostol, Oaxaca
  • Halved & quartered (cogollo removed) maguey earthen roasted for four days using a mix of guamúchil and mesquite wood
  • Cooked maguey macerated with proprietary blade spindle destrozadora shredder.
  • Fermented together with bagaso in 1,400L pine wood vats using airborne yeast strains
  • Double distilled in ceramic pot stills to approx. 53% ABV and reduced with triple distilled demineralized water, no tails
  • No aging, bottled at 46% ABV

Tasting Notes 

  • Nose - Rich aromas of roast agave, oceanic salt spray, with notes of lactic fermentation.
  • Taste - This ensamble is like the bass section of the orchestra. It opens with a rumbling timpani and then bursts of mineral highlights. In the background, these brooding flavors from the woody Bicuishe are always subsumed in the sweet minerality of the Tobala. This play of flavors makes you sit and contemplate, but there’s a real tension because the mezcal is so restrained that you always expect something else to happen.

        What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

        Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

        Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

        One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

        Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

        In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
