The Schtick: This was an agave that I tried blind. I took notes and received the reveal when I was finished.

Review #1120 | Mezcal Review #11

Distiller: Gregorio Hernandez, Javier Nolasco Diaz

Bottler: El Jolgorio

Brand: El Jolgorio


ABV: 47% ABV

Age: NAS

Nose: Cream, viengar, light beet / tomato. Very agave forward – ripe and efervescent. Plenty of confectioners sugar and light minerality. Faint lemon zest.

Taste: Thin but no heat. Light earthiness. Musty and sour with salt, copper, notes of soapstone and charcoal. Pepper.

Finish: Short, no heat again but also not super imposing. Light vinegar, faint tomato juice. Mango. light brine and some ash.

Overall: Delicious and complex although not very in your face. Not a terrible thing. I like this and would easily drink it once more, and again after that.

Thanks for reading!
