  • Maestro mezcalero - José Emilio Vieyra Rangel.
  • Tasting notes - The aroma of the light freshness of forest and wet earth, tones of citrus flavors, and field grass.

Tasting Notes 

  • The nose is reminiscent of key lime pie, with an invigorating and refreshing quality similar to chewing peppermint breath mints.
  • The mezcal presents notes of forest soil and celery stalk on the palate and a hint of leafy bitterness. There is also a hearty sweetness resembling oatmeal with brown sugar and a subtle smokiness reminiscent of pine wood.
  • Finishes with a spicy kick that exceeds the expected level of 46% ABV, and this spiciness persists into the aftertaste.  

This mezcal offers a complex and well-balanced flavor profile that combines earthy and sweet notes with a smoky and spicy finish.

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.
