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.

There are two batches of this out, 2021 and 2017. The 2017 will be pricier.
Batch 2017. This might be the best Aguerrido offering. This has nuance that’s hard to describe, it changes in the bottle. I get creamy coffee notes on the nose and palate. This is also green and tropical. I get some anise flavors as well.

Batch 2021 This is a surface level version of the 2017. It has a shorter finish and the flavors aren’t as pronounced but it’s still delicious.

Produced in June 2017 and aged in glass. This is another phenomenal mezcal from Aguerrido. Fruity and slightly creamy aromas. Notes of banana, guava, and cherry pie. The palate is rich with hazelnut, cacao, oak, toasted coconut, and sage. There’s a bit of heat on the finish. Really enjoyable.
