The Schtick: This was an agave that I tried blind. I took notes and received the reveal when I was finished.
Distiller: Nuestra Soledad (El Jolgorio)
Mezcalero: Gregorio Hernandez, Javier Nolasco Diaz
Village: San Luis del Rio (El Jolgorio)
Bottler: Nuestra Soledad
ABV: 47% ABV
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!
