About this mezcal

Bozal Castilla is a limited release made with maguey Castilla (agave Angustifolia). The aroma of this mezcal is of fruit and wet earth. A slight sweetness is evident on the palate with flavors of roasted agave, mocha, and fresh mint. The finish is smooth with a bit of smoke.

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.

Lot 000217 – just got a sample from a Bozal rep and its the best expression in their lineup that I’ve tried. Although its an espadin this expression tastes complex and although it seems like a broken record the clay pot distillation process makes this a winner. The drawback being the cost ($90-$120/bottle). Sweet, earthy, herbal, and smooth. Worth a try if you come across it!

Interesting bottle for sure. This expression is bursting with flavors – few of them pedestrian or routine. While I like it, there are some rough patches, including the dominating smoke on the palate that sort of set it back to me.

Really enjoying this one! Has wet dirt and barnyard on the initial nose that lasts throughout the pour. Lots of subtle fruit flavors including mango and ripe cantaloupe. Herbs and mild serrano peppers on the finish. There is a lot going on here. A must try if you see it. Lot 217 from Jan 2017

Lot 000117 from Jan 2017. The bartender at Palenque Mezcaleria in Denver recommended this over any other Bozal bottles, and I found it very enjoyable. I’d never seen a straight agave Castilla before, so I figured I’d give it a try. It has some sweet agave notes that blend nicely with hints of mint leaf, rosemary, and freshly cut herbs.
