About this destilado de agave

Caballito Cerrero Chato Puntas is made with maguey Chato (Agave angustifolia). The agave are cooked in a brick steam oven, milled in a double pass mill, fermented in open stainless steel tanks with both wild and proprietary yeast, and distilled in stainless steel and copper. This high-ABV version is made with the first cuts from the 2nd distillation and is only available in limited quantities.

Caballito Cerrero

Caballito Cerrero is a Tequila company founded in 1950 by Don Alfonso Jimenez Rosales. It is considered one of the top Tequila distilleries in the world. They’re committed to producing Tequila the traditional way and that sometimes means they butt heads with the Consejo Regulador del Tequila (CRT). For this reason, they label their traditionally produced Tequilas as Destilado de Agave.

While at the Caballito Cerrero distillery in June 2022 my brother and I had a tour and tasting. Getting there is an adventure by itself. You should go. Mezcal Reviews did a great blog about it a couple years ago.

I did not expect a puntas (70%) when I arrived. I hadn’t planned to buy any bottles on this trip due to luggage cost on the airplane. After tasting it I changed my mind and got a bottle. They were out of the Chato (one that I tried) and I took home Azul 70%. By the way did anyone else encounter a switcharoo like this?

The aroma was like no other agave spirit ever. Definite alcohol but more like a pine scented nuclear fusion. I had a few goes at trying to get aromatics, but every time I could not describe it, except to say it’s like UFO fuel.
The taste was unique and great as well–overwhelming and beautiful at the same time. Definite heat but some river-rock minerality that was sensational. The taste happened very quickly almost no time to gauge what was happening.
The finish is what sold it for me, it was really good. There was something ultra-clean about it.
This was more an experience than a tasting. Like a roller-coaster ride that was so good you get off and say “what happened?”

Maestro Javier Jiménez Vizcarra, Javier Jiménez Teran
Jan 2024, bottle No. 64

It comes in at a staggering 71.5% – OMG this is an experience.
— light agave on the nose, with no hint of what is about to happen on the palette.

— goes in really round and viscous and almost skips over the front part of the tongue, but then WHAM that 71% hits like a volcano.

It always keeps the agave flavors, but it’s a wild ride. In the middle of the taste, there is a really nice woodiness around the agave. This is not for the faint of heart though.
