About this destilado de agave

Agua del Sol Espadin from Reyna Rodriguez Ramirez is produced in the community of San Carlos Yautepec, Oaxaca. The agaves are cooked in an underground pit oven, fermented in sabino wood vats, and double distilled in 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. IV/2022, 48.4%, 1L

Nose – Sweet and intoxicating. Heavy on the permanent marker. Then some coconut, tobacco, pine, some grass, and definitely rubbing alcohol.

Palate – Tangy, bittersweet, and smoky; rubber, tobacco, tamarind, and some mild ginger.

Finish – This is heavy on the charred and smoke notes as some of the tang fades out; burnt bbq ends.

Decent Espadin, but not special. Too smoky and one dimensional for my taste. With a 1L your’e definitely getting your bang for your buck. Might be better suited as a mixer rather than a sipper. I can see this 1L being great for entertaining guests.

Batch: IV/2022

Feels like winning the lottery to get a one liter bottle rather than a 750. A decent and quality espadin. I really like this one in cocktails, makes a great paloma, mezcal margarita, and Oaxacan old-fashioned. As a sipper, it is a little smoke forward, on the nose, in the front and back of palate. It also has a little bitterness, which I have grown to enjoy in espadins, but at times the astringency and smoke don’t give any fruit or sweet flavors space to shine. After letting my copita get some air, the smoke is less pronounced and you get some nectarine, Rainier cherry, sage, oak, and cola. This one does pack some heat, which lingers on the palate for a while. A great deal for a one liter bottle.
