Casa Manglar Mezcal

Casa Manglar’s (Mangrove house in Spanish) philosophy is to offer one of the best mezcals, always respecting traditions and being able to share them with everyone. The name is a tribute to the indigenous people living in the area of Sierra de Oaxaca.

All of the mezcals from the brand are produced by two palenques in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca. They have a production capacity of 12,000 liters per month. Agave is sourced from nearby fields in various stages and also purchased on the open market.

Lot: CM-E-0821
Nose – Salty, sea air. Light toffee. A slight aroma of smoked tri tip.

Palate – Mandarin orange. Birch wood. Icing sugar although not overly sweet. Bitter, grassy finish. A tiny bit of ethanol throughout. For me this is about a 3.25 on merit but since it holds up against most solid starter espadins under $40, I’ll give it the bump to 3.5. A decent entry espadin, priced fairly.

Big caramel and vanilla notes, powdered sugar, banana pudding, chocolate malt balls. Initially I got a slightly vegetal and metallic finish but it completely went away after 10 minutes of air. For $38 a bottle this is very good. Not a lot of complexity but plenty of flavor.
