About this mezcal

Bozal Borrego is a limited release. This mezcal is made with wild agave Castilla, which is a close relative to agave Espadin. Similar to a Pechuga, during the second distillation, a leg of lamb, in addition to seasonal wild fruits and grains harvested from the local market, are suspended inside the bottom of the still in a basket. These wild fruits include strawberries, apples and pineapple, while additional ingredients consist of pecans and ginger. This mezcal is heavily viscous. It is fruity, but balanced with notes of citrus and finish of smoked lamb.

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.

Dark bitter chocolate, intense spice, lemon peel. Overall a ‘dark’ mezcal. Finish is a bit dry. More meat on the nose than the palate. My friends enjoyed this a lot but it is not for me.

  • Overall:

Lot 000117 from Dec 2016. There is a lot of soft spice on this! Cinnamon, vanilla, and lavender notes are bright. It has strong flavor of ground nuts and smoked meat. Very smooth for 52% ABV. There aren’t many Borrego Mezcals on the US market and this one is worth trying.
