Produced from wild Pulquero agaves grown around San Baltazar Guelavila. The variety is well known for its use in pulque (tequilas pre-cursor) and was previously classified as Agave salmiana, hence the title Salmiana is used interchangeably. Mezcalero Master, Pedro Hernández employs a double distillation via a copper alembic. The nose here is relatively shy, dry and minerally evoking pencil shavings, unripe pineapple and herbal teas. The palate delivers a fabulous melting pot of succulent, smokey, exotic flavours suggesting ripe papaya, salt'n'pepper, green apple, capsicum, chillies and a tactile finish that lingers with pepper, lanolin and hints of incense smoke. Robust and complex. Great mezcal. 46.98% Alc./Vol.

Notes from the producers... Intense smoke, very linear that highlights the properties of cooked agave and a finish that is slightly reminiscent of pulque.
