About this mezcal

Bozal Ancestral is made with wild agave Cupreata, which is known as maguey Papalote in the state of Guerrero, where this agave grows on the mountain slopes of the Rio Balsas Basin. The rough landscape makes it incredibly difficult to harvest this agave. This mezcal has a floral sweetness that presents itself on the palate with aromas of wet earth. It’s balanced with a citric finish.

Bozal Mezcal

Mezcal Bozal is a craft, artisan, handmade Mezcal. They celebrate the wild side of the Mezcal world and the wild agave used to produce such rich spirits. They use agave from the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero that are indigenous to the region. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.

this was not what i expected from a cupreata.the initial impression is very dark,herbal and earthy.it is very good with complex spices and slight sweet agave but the sweetness is reserved.notes of smoke mixed with black pepper and green chili.medium heat.bold and complex.i would give this a 5 star on a cold fall or winter evening.seems more suited for cooler weather.looking forward to trying again but i must admit i will have to be in the mood for this flavor.at least 4 and a half stars (in summer).

I like this one a lot. Got to try 2 different bottles of it. First one was added as a gift to an order for the restaurant i was working for. Second one i talked the distributor into selling me a bottle privately.

The nose reminds of white/green tea, chamomile, wet wood and smoke, very floral over all.
Taste is very smooth and sweet at first, a little tea, then smoke, minerality and wood.
Longlasting.

If u can get one, do so! I paid around 70€ in germany for it. For a limited edition, especially an ancestral, of this taste a very good price in my opinion.
