Lamata Cenizo Durango 750ml - Lamata Cenizo is an agave spirit produced by Federico Cruz and his family in El Mezquital, Durango, using Maguey Cenizo (Agave Durangensis). 

It is produced using Cenizo agave that grows among pine trees at high elevations with a colder climate than typical Maguey Cenizo. This gives the spirit a green character with notes of green pepper and chili, characteristic of Salmianas.

Tasting Notes

  • On the nose, Lamata Cenizo has a jolly watermelon rancher aroma with a hint of balsamic vinegar and tart strawberries.
  • On the palate is a strong helping of watermelon, candy, and balsamic. It feels less candied than the nose suggests, with nice acidity and a thick mouthfeel. With water added, some bubblegum joins in to mellow out some of the acidic watermelon notes.
  • The finish is a bit hot due to its 52.5% ABV and a slight acrid plastic note. However, it is joined by a nice basil and balsamic note that reminds the taster of Caprese salad. The finish is drier than the palate and slightly disjointed.

Lamata Cenizo is a fun and powerful expression, with a palate that is right up the alley for some, despite some flaws in the finish. The mezcal offers a unique flavor profile that showcases the indigenous traditions of Northern Mexico.

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.
