Mezcal

Agave de Cortes Espadin

8

A beautiful expression of 100% Espadin Agave from the area of Santiago Matatlan. On the nose, subdued smoke lays the groundwork for vegetal ripeness and floral notes. On the palate, bright acidity and 45% ABV balance with layers and layers of flavor: lemongrass, damp earth and dense clay/mineral are coated by rich body and silky texture.

Banhez Ensemble Joven Mezcal

7

Comprised of 90% Espadín and 10% Barril agaves, this mezcal is delightfully mild, floral and fruity (pineapple, banana). Banhez Ensemble is perfect for first-time mezcal tasters.

Banhez Tepeztate

7

Comprised of 100% Tepeztate agave (which can take up to 25 years to mature), this rare bottling of this unique agave species yields a flavor rich in smoke and terroir driven earthiness, with a green pepper vegetal nose, soft green apple fruitiness, and notes of citrus zest.

Cuentacuentos Coyote

15

Cuentacuentos Coyote en Barro is produced by Ángel Cruz Robles in a forest outside of Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. Ángel’s technique imparts a caramel flavor that does not overpower agave Coyote’s inherent earthiness.

Cuentacuentos Cuish

12

Cuentacuentos Cuish is produced by Maximiliano “Serafin” García Gerónimo outside of San Dionisio Ocotopec. The flavor profile of this mezcal is a perfect expression of agave Karwinskii: fresh, vegetal, green and bright.

Cuentacuentos Gonzalez Espadin

9

Serafín's mezcals, made in the artisanal style, on a small hillside outside of San Dionisio Ocotopec, faithfully honor their constituent agaves. His cuish is no exception. This distillation's flavor profile is why we love mezcals made from Agave karwinskii: it is fresh, vegetal, green and bright—no unwanted aromatics, no untoward flavors, no compromises.

Cuentacuentos Tepeztate

12

Cuentacuentos Tepeztate is produced by Maestra Mezcalera Alejandrina Aragón Hernandez in a valley outside of Santa Maria Zoquitlán. This mezcal has notes of melon, tropical fruits and honey on the palate.

Cuentacuentos Tobala

12

Don Amado Rustico is a strong Espadin mezcal that is made in Santa Catarina Minas. It has notes of fruit, minerals, and clay.

Derrumbes Durango Mezcal

12

Durango is the most north-eastern state in the Mezcal DO area, and is known for its wild but abundant Agave Durangensis, known locally as Cenizo ("ash", because of the colour). Maestro Mezcalero Uriel Simental follows the traditional method of production, using a horno de tierra, tahona, natural fermentation, and small scale distillation in copper pot stills. The flavour profile obtained is fruity and zinging, with hints of tropical fruit, citrus (pomelo), and tamarind, underpinned with a little smokiness and pine notes. When it hits the palate it explodes with these fruity vibrant notes, and has a textured feeling in the mouth. The finish is fresh and fruity.

Derrumbes Michoacan Mezcal

14

Two species of agave are used to produce Derrumbes Michoacan: agave Cupreata brings mature fruit aromas, while agave Cenizo brings more herbal notes. Cooked in an underground stone pit using black oak, Derrumbes Michoacan is fermented in underground tanks lined with pine wood which adds to the herbal character. True to the tradition of mezcal production in this area, Derrumbes Michoacan is distilled using the Filipino method, which predates copper-pot distillation. This technique requires the body of the still to be made from wood, with the alcohol vapours condensed by a copper pot full of water that sits at the top of the trunk. This process adds to the unique character of Derrumbes Michoacan, which after distillation is 46% ABV and is rested in large glass bottles before the final bottling.

Derrumbes Tamaulipas Mezcal

11

This majestic ensemble comes from one of the appellation’s most undiscovered territories. It is also one to cherish as it represents a rare opportunity to explore an area with complex violence problems which make it hard to visit. Maestro mezcalero Cuauhtémoc Jaquez delivers a stunning ensemble with a blend of 3 different agaves: Tamaulipas endemic Funkiana and Univittata, together with Americana. The result is a high-energy spirit that feels sweet, dry and rich with multiple layers of flavor and aroma.

Derrumbes San Luis Potosi

11

Derrumbes San Luis Potosí is an incredible example of a very particular style of mezcal crafted in the high altitude Central Mexican Plateau, in the state of San Luis Potosí. Made from the region's wild agave Salmiana, it gives the mezcal a unique, vibrant flavour. Despite its abundance, this agave has a very low yield, needing up to four times as much to create an equal amount of spirit when compared to the blue agave used in the tequila region. Grown in calcareous soils, this mezcal terrifically showcases its terroir characteristics, with chalky notes very evident in the flavour profile. Produced in an old traditional hacienda, above ground ovens known as hornos are used to cook the agave which mean their mezcal is not smoky. Once cooked, the agave is crushed by a tahona, fermented naturally with wild yeast, twice-distilled in small copper pot stills, and bottled at 43.5% ABV.

Derrumbes Zacatecas

11

Composed on 100% Agave Tequiliana Weber, vareity Azul (Blue Weber). Produced with the ancient method prevalent before the diffusion of above-ground cooking in the 1850’s. Hacienda De Guadalupe is in Juitzila, Zacatecas, a few miles from the tequila valley just across the state border. Maestro Mezcalero Jaime Banuelos smokes the blue agaves in a Horno de Tierra (roasting pit), then crushes them with a tradional tahona, ferments naturally with wild yeast, and distills in small copper pot stills. This method develops an exceptional flavor profile: on the nose its like a higher ABV tequila, but with strong depth of smoke and earthiness. On the palate it has the full mouth-coating texture of traditional mezcal, but elegant notes usually associated with tequila. On the finish the blue agave is very distinctive, and leaves a long tequila-like freshness with earthy under notes.

Don Amado Rustico

9

Made by Germán Bonifacio Arellanes with Angustofolia Haw Espadín Agave grown at 4,800' in municipio of Sta. Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. The influence of the minero clay still is quite prevalent on the nose with aromatics leaning towards ash, crushed walnuts, roasted corn, and savory spices. A bright, citrusy espadin agave palate is well balanced against notes of caramel, butterscotch and fresh herbs.

Don Amado Arroqueno Mezcal

15

Made by Germaín Arellanes with Arroqueño agave grown at 4,800' in the town of San Pablo Apostol, Oaxaca. Double distilled in ceramic pots. Rustic and refined, revealing bright floral aromatics with notes of caramelized agave, leather and soft smoke that lend structure to ripe, cooked yam fruit flavors. A supple mouthfeel delivers quince, persimmon, lemon verbena and kaffir, juxtaposed with layered chocolate, espresso and savory spice with balanced minerality and savory roast characteristics.

10

10

El Jolgorio Barril

20

Barril is a subspecies of the karwinskii family of agaves that grows wild at very high elevations. The stalk-like pińa of Barril has a wider girth than its other karwinskii relatives, giving it a portly look and inspiring the name, which means barrel in Spanish. This agave balances sweetness, citrus, and a distinct minerality with hints of earth and light smoke.

El Jolgorio Cuixe

15

Like it’s relatives, Madrecuixe and Barril, it grows a cylindrical, stalk-shaped pińa, with leaves spreading at the top. It is often slightly smaller than Madrecuixe. It’s dense, dry pińa often yields intensely flavored mezcal with great minerality and spice notes. Earthy, robust scent, like wet clay. Slightly spicy and smoky but not in an overpowering way.

El Jolgorio Espadin

14

Agave Espadin is the most prevalent species of agave in Mexico and reaches maturity earlier than most other agaves. It also grows to be relatively large with a high sugar content, making it perfect for mezcal production. The Espadin mezcal from El Jolgorio label, often is produced in remote areas or is rested in glass for several years before being bottled to allow for the spirit to mellow and its flavors develop fully. Herbaceous, floral with hints of citrus.

El Jolgorio Madrecuixe

15

Agave Madrecuixe is a member of the karwinshkii species of agave, related to others like Cuixe, Barril and Bicuixe. It grows sparsely at higher elevations and has a cylindrical pińa, with it’s leaves growing at a distinctly upward angle. Due to the agave’s dense core and relatively low water content, mezcal made from Madrecuixe often has a flavor profile high in minerality, with wisps of vegetation and floral notes. Notes of wet clay and peanut butter.

El Jolgorio Mexicano

A genetic relative to Espadin, Mexicano reaches maturity with a high concentration of sugars. It’s long, broad pencas are dangerous with razor sharp tips. In some dialects, it is also called ‘dobadaan’ or ‘dob-daiin’. Tastes of light smoke, citrus peppers and a slight mesquite note.

El Jolgorio Tobala

30

Traditional pit-roasted, mule-drawn, tahona-crushed, open fermented, double-distilled mezcal from 100% wild-harvested Agave Tobalá Agave potatorum harvested at 12 years of age, bottled at 47% ABV. Produced in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, by mezcalero Gregorio
Martinez Jarquin. The wild agave Tobala is one of the most prized of all agaves. Growing wildly in high altitudes and in the shade of oak trees, its relatively tiny size yields limited quantities of intensely aromatic mezcal. Fresh, aromatic and fruity.

El Jolgorio Tobaziche

30

El Jolgorio Tobaziche is made with the rare agave Tobaziche, which is a member of the Karwinskii family. This agave takes 14 years to mature before it is ready for harvest. Deep notes of pine, green bananas, lime peel, and a hint of tar that mixes with clean smoke.

El Jolgorio Jabali

35

El Jolgorio Jabali is made with 100% wild agave Jabali that is harvested at 16-18 years of age. This mezcal is extremely rare and it’s very limited in it’s release. A 2013 release of this mezcal had only 54 bottles, and future releases are likely to be equally as small.

El Jolgorio Cenizo (Karwinski)

30

El Jolgorio Cenizo is made with 100% agave Cenizo (Karwinskii) that took 14 years to mature. The first batch of this mezcal was released as a fairly large lot considering how seldom agave Cenizo is used in Oaxacan Mezcal. Notes of this mezcal include sweet nectar, chalky minerals, and sea salt. It has a long, extended finish.
-MezcalReviews.com

El Jolgorio Arroqueno

30

El Jolgorio Arroqueno (or Arruqueno) is made from 100% semi-wild agave Arroqueno. The agave Arroqueno is significant because of it’s large size. Typically, this agave can take up to 30 years to mature, before it is pit roasted in a traditional fashion. Given the length of time needed to grow this elegant agave, sustainability of Arroqueno has become a big issue. Fortunately, El Jolgorio only makes this mezcal in small batches so they can keep the production sustainable while conserving younger wild agave plants.

Scorpion 5 yr Mezcal

20

“Beautiful golden amber color. Intense aromas of roasted pineapple, raw honey, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon bark, fresh herbs, and smoldering embers. A rich, lush entry leads to a massive, off-dry full-bodied palate of roasted agave, grilled pineapple, wildflower honey, oiled leather, charred oak, exotic peppercorns, and brown spices. Finishes with a long, sweet fade of toffee, peppery spice, and smoky oak. Amazingly complex, balanced, and utterly delicious. The medium amber/harvest gold color is attractive and pure. The first nosings pick up intriguing, if oddly compelling notes of quinine, burnt match and furniture polish; additional time in the glass brings out deeper scents, especially onion, brine, olives, and damp earth. The palate entry is sooty, sweet, and close to creamy; at midpalate, the taste profile turns zesty, oaky sweet, charcoal-like, and, on the whole, savory. Finishes bittersweet and caramel-like. Nice job.’ - Paul Pacult Spirits Journal
