About this mezcal

Bozal Ibérico is made with Maguey Espadin, Mexicano, and Tobasiche in Rio de Ejutla, Oaxaca. This Ibérico recipe is typically only produced in small batches for ceremonial and festive purposes. First the agave are cooked in an underground oven, then milled and fermented, and finally distilled once in a copper pot still. Before the second and final distillation, a piece of seasoned ham/pork is hung in the still and aromatic herbs, spices, and seasonal fruits are added into the distillate.

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.

Lote: 00220
Nose – Ruby Red grapefruit juice. Baked pineapple and sugar glazed ham. Fresh sage. Squeezed lemon.

Palate – Tasty and meaty (Newfoundland salt pork). Overly floral. The smoke is reminiscent of a Santa Maria, CA style smoker slow cooked baby back ribs (a perk of living in the area). More thin than viscous. Overall though it feels like the ham/pechaga was WAY overseasoned with the “aromatic herbs, spices and seasonal fruits.” This is a case where less would’ve been more and complemented the ensamble (and meat) rather than overpowering it. It’s still good, glad I got a bottle to experience this, I’ll enjoy it but wouldn’t buy it again.

Very Good overall impression.

*I really wish more of the Iberico came through on the palate. I really wanted to like this. I really enjoyed the complex nose too, but somehow the palate seemed disconnected. May have to revisit. Nonetheless nicely balanced overall.

I really like this one! An aroma of sweet melon and citrus. Salty, smoky and meaty flavour with some spice (very much like pork). Very rich and savoury flavour, absolutely delicious! In my top 5!
