Maguey Melate Luis Enrique Juarez Ensamble

The Schtick: copper ejutla

Review #1784 | Mezcal Review #153

Distiller: Luis Enrique Juarez

Bottler: Maguey Melate

Brand: Maguey Melate


ABV: 46.2% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Lush and sweet. Lots of vanilla, cream sweetness, butter and a faint anise.

Taste: Palate is also sweet in an incredibly buttery dimension. Desserty, with a hint of cocoa, some earthiness. Nice mineral quality with plenty of cream and sweetness. Not a lot – or any at all – of fruit character. Smoke is absent.

Finish: Short to medium finish. More ash forward here than anywhere else (first sign of smoke) and it’s fairly one dimensional.

Overall: Good nose, great palate, sort of pedestrian finish. It’s hard to knock this Ensemble, but it’s a little inconsistent.

Thanks for reading!

Rank: 5
