About this mezcal

Burrito Fiestero Castilla is part of the limited Ancestral lineup that is produced in Durango, Mexico. This mezcal is produced by Arturo Conde in Pino Suárez, Durango. The agave are milled by hand with axes and distilled in a clay/wood (viejo) Philippine still. This still uses clay pots on the bottom chamber, with the upper chamber made of wood. As the spirit condenses, drops run through a bamboo into a collector.

Burrito Fiestero Mezcal

Mezcal Burrito Fiestero hails from the mountainous State of Durango. The company has an agave reforestation campaign called “ONE FOR ONE” where they plant one agave Cenizo per bottle that is produced, essentially planting 10 times more than what they use. They also play an important role in the sustainable development of El Mezquital, Durango by becoming the biggest jobs provider of the region.

49.1% abv (did not catch the batch info)

Got a healthy two ounce pour at Cactus at Alki Beach in Seattle. Bubblegum, pine, incense smoke, and cypress on the nose. Flavors hit on the bubblegum, pine tar, underripe peach and nectarines, lychee, animal crackers, olive brine, and bitter citrus pith. Rock solid. Looking over the other reviews, I hit upon some similar notes, but I must concur with RazorbackMike: this went really well with a warm spring afternoon in the PNW.

Batch 002-CAS. Bottle 767/1440. Fruity and slightly lactic. The nose has notes of pineapple-orange juice, lemon leaf, honeydew, kiwi, and a hint of soft cheeses. The palate is dripping wet with juicy notes of fresh orange, dark papaya, pineapple, and earthy minerals. This is a stellar limited release. Really enjoying this.
