Jabali

Maguey Jabali (agave Convallis) is extremely hard to work with. It foams and expands during fermentation and distillation, which has led to some stills being damaged during distillation as the spirit has seemingly exploded out of the seems of the still. This agave has a distinctly wild attitude, and many of the Jabali mezcals that can be found in Oaxaca (and not yet exported) are still somewhat chaotic and unrefined.

Other names for agave Jabali:

  • Cuche
  • Lobo
  • Morono (Mixteca region of Oaxaca)
