Aguerrido Mezcal

Mezcal Aguerrido is a brand that comes from the heart of the state of Guerrero, one of the least represented mezcal producing states due to the difficulties with narco-traffickers in the area. The brand is a union of maestros mezcaleros from Chilapa, Guerrero including Don Refugio, Don Ciro (R.I.P.), Don Tomás, Don Benigno, Dona Gabina, y Don Antonio.

The nose is fantastic. A very rich aroma sneaks into every corner of the room after five minutes in the glass, smelling like sweet woodruff, vanilla, roadside wildflowers by the coast on a summer day, freshly made marzipan.
On the palate, I get dry roasted pistachios, pomegranate, peeled cucumber, Ceylon cinnamon, a very light smoke and incredible nuances I really cannot decipher.
Very well rounded and structured, long aftertaste and medium to full mouthfeel. It is like an explosion of flavours I associate with Middle Eastern/Levantine/Persian pastries, only with that brilliant, fruity agave freshness and herbal qualities making it incredibly pleasant to drink. This is among the top five experiences of anything I have ever tasted, to be savoured in tranquility.
