About this destilado de agave

Agua del Sol Espadin / Coyote / Cuishe / Barril was produced by maestra mezcalera Berta Vasquez in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca. The agave was roasted over mesquite and encino in traditional underground pits and milled by horse-drawn tahona. They were then naturally fermented in sabino vats and double distilled on small copper alembic stills.

Agua del Sol

Agua del Sol was created by Felix Hernández Monterrosa and Adriana Correa, who are perhaps most well-known as the owners and operators of the Mezcales CUISH mezcalerias in Oaxaca City. Given the demands of the two mezcalerias, as well as some additional agave projects, the two of them created Agua del Sol with the intention of using to brand to present tiny batches of mezcal to the world.

Batch No.: BV-ENS-IX-22, 46%, Bottle No.: 98/163

Nose – An earthy, musty sweetness; tree bark, fresh cut grass, and some sweet/funky spices, like cloves, cinnamon, tobacco, and honey.

Palate – Woody and rustic but also very tangy. A citrusy and floral opening that subdues an overall earthy body. Smoky but not offensive. Mcdonald’s bbq sauce, sugar cane, dark ripe grapes, overly ripe mangoes, and something tropical, like the tiniest bit of ginger and some coconuts.

Finish – Tanginess fades out into a bittersweetness with lingering smoke; fruit piths, orange rind, mango peel, and some bbq pulled pork.

Very tasty and easy to drink! There is such a woody and rustic component in here that you’d think this was an añejo. Good, but definitely not Berta’s best. It’s missing some nuance to truly send this over the edge. However, it’s an Ensamble with a fairly low bottle count with a combo of a great brand with a master Mezcalera, this release flies under the radar and is fun to try if you have the chance!
