Koch El Mezcal Artesanal Maguey Madrecuishe Mezcal (750ml)
Made by Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar using twelve year old wild Madrecuishe magueys. Their dense core and low water content is said to result in mezcals with fresh vegetal and floral notes. This expression presents a cleaner, more contemporary style; Agave focussed aromas are pure, sweet and sedate. Everything feels in its place in a superb integration of balsa wood and capsicum-like flavours meshed with low-key fruitiness. Herbaceous, green chillie and menthol tobacco notes rally at the finish. This feels like a compendium of all things Mezcal rolled into a single, elegant unison. 46.06% Alc./Vol.
Notes from the producers... Aromatics: Persistent wetness that reminds us of mushrooms in the beginning, leading to fresh spearmint and lemon grass. Finish of dry almonds and sweet pine nuts. On the palate: Medium-bodied with clean prune flavor. Harmonious flavors of sweet cucumber, nopal-cactus and baby arugula leaves. At the end hints of cured meat and pickling flavors, and a light note of eucalyptus in the aftertaste.
