About this destilado de agave

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.

April 2022 46.9% sampled on 6/7/2024 100 liter 1 year 2 months in glass. Aromas out of the bottle or spicy jalapeno and light blue cheese little bit of smoke and a small amount of acetone. Flavors to follow with a lot of strong spicy alcohol in the finish this one’s a powerful burn hopefully it airs out some and becomes a little smoother. After the initial opening on the spot on it has aired out some it’s become smoother and softer but this one still is the most powerful and hard-hitting of the bunch. At the initial airing this one shows lots of smoke and leather it opens up with time and some of the heat goes away.
