Review #700 – El Jolgario Mexicano

Review #700 | /r/Mezcal Review #4 – El Jolgario Mexicano

The Schtick: This is a single agave mezcal made from 100% Mexicano. It was distilled at the De Cortes distillery and bottled on site.


Producer: De Cortes

ABV: 47% ABV

Produced: 2013

Bottle: 156/300

Source: Sample


Nose: Doughy, honey, pepper. Fruity, some ethanol / varnish notes. Bready and earthy.

Taste: Medium mouth feel with no immediately apparent smokiness. Sweet honey, bready again, Gouda cheese and pepper. The lactic cheese note is interesting but really nice.

Finish: Short, sweet and peppery.

Overall: This wasn’t half bad either, but lacked a lot of real depth. It did, however, make a very nice cocktail.

Thanks for reading!
