Mexicano magueys are large plants with three variations: Chontal, Mexican and Mexican Long stock. All are used in this expression made by Mezcalero, Adrian Bautista. Some find the style reminiscent of fermented fruit and prickly pears. Here, the aromas conjure dried grass, pepper, green capsicum, distant wood smoke and beeswax. It's a slightly less assertive yet nicely balanced expression presenting semi-sweet agave flavours, brine, green olives with a deliciously tangy, vibrant, salty finish. The aftertaste is delicately smokey, salivating and (almost) malt whisky-like. A rounded mouthfeel and low smoke input makes it easily approached. 46.98% Alc./Vol.

Notes from the producers... Aromatics: Linger minerality, dry tobacco leaves and fruity notes of overripe cantaloupe and peach, with hints of cacao and cinnamon. On the palate: In the beginning its sweet with a short persistence and silky mouthfeel. With dark chocolate and dry chili pepper flakes. Finishes with fresh mushrooms and clove notes.
