About this mezcal

Burrito Fiestero Masparillo is made with maguey Masparillo that is found growing wild in the lower areas of El Mezquital, Durango. This mezcal is produced by Juan Manuel Conde in San Nicolas, Durango and 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.

This was the first time I tried a Masparillo and my second expression from the Burrito Fiestero line. I have to say I am really enjoying these mezcals. Being a mostly tequila drinker, I find these to be great mezcals for those looking to dive into Mezcal from Tequila. There is little smoke. Just enough to let you know it’s a mezcal produced in an ancestral way. Nose I get Cinnamon, fruit like citrus and minerality from the water..
Flavors Cinnamon sweetness, then tart sweet fruit like pineapple and then tropical fruit like papaya, mango and banana. On the finish nice sweetness that tell you to sip some more.

Nice strong fruit flavors, very easy to sip and enjoy. I recommend it for anyone looking to try Mezcal from tequila and anyone that like the more fruity flavored mezcals.

Batch 001-MP. Bottle 862/1440. Strong aromas of gingerbread cookies, fresh flowers, and serrano peppers. The palate has vanilla bean, jalapeno, dry grasses, minerals, and spicy radishes. This is really tasty.

I had the opportunity to try this special production of a Masparillo agave found in Durango. With this being my first Masparillo to try, I had nothing to compare it except the few ancestral expressions I have tried from other mezcaleros. Just over 50% it delivers abundance of flavors like wet grass, minerality, vanilla with a beautiful finish. I found out they use a phillipine still for production which is very uncommon due to the strength of the still typically does not allow for many uses, but it original to the production styles of Durango. Also, hand painted by the communities within Durango releasing a featured agave production once a year. I love what they are doing and cant wait to see whats next!

first time to try a masparillo.i was not disappointed.the nose was strong with fresh wild flowers and sugar cookies.like spring in a bottle.the first impression on the tongue was reserved but after a second or two it really blossomed.very floral and a stong vanilla note.the finish was medium with mucho vanilla,plenty of smoke and the vanilla continued.mild with a pleasant bite.little hints of honey.wonderful spirit.this was a freshly opened bottle and i cant help but think that time will turn this beautiful spirit into a 5 star when it opens up.
