Made with 100% wild Barril magueys harvested at around twelve years old, Mezcalero Adrian Bautista in Rio de Ejutla employs a copper alembic with cooling and grinding plates for the distillation. A fresh, conifer-led bouquet runs the range of crushed pine buds, juniper and smouldering pine as well as fruity notes of papaya and plantain. Full, rich and rounded with nice agave definition and great mouthfeel, the profile here is reminiscent of smokey Highland malts. Pepper and sweet wood smoke persist through the tangy, oily, salty, tobacco-laced finish. 47.6% Alc./Vol.
