About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Brocha – Ixtero Amarillo is a destilado de agave from Zapotitlan de Vadillo, Jalisco. The agave Brocha is an agave Angustifolia, sub-varietal related to Espadin, and the agave Ixtero Amarillo is an agave Rhodacantha, sub-varietal related to Mexicano. The agave are cooked in an underground oven and milled by hand with axes. Once cooked and milled, the agave are fermented naturally in wooden tinas with mountain spring water. Finally, they are double distilled in a Filipino style still.


The Partida family, lead by Don Macario, has been making their iconic "mezcales" for 5 generations in Zapotitlan de Vadillo, Jalisco, however due to legalities they can neither call their product mezcal nor tequila. They are renowned among mezcaleros and mezcal aficionados for the amazing spirits that are meticulously made from the 15 different agave varietals that they have been collecting from their region for three generations. These varietals include 14 A. angustifolia sub varietals and 1 A. rhodacantha sub-varietal.

Lot 2 from Sept 2016. Bottle 253/1466. Smells piney with hints of vanilla, spearmint, and menthol. Palate is balanced and full. Hints cinnamon and Christmas (candy canes, mistletoe, etc…). Some mint on the palate as well, mostly spearmint and a bit of menthol.

Very interesting! Like a blend of mezcal and raicilla with a tequila finish. Flavors of blueberries and whipped cream. The finish is a spiced holiday pie. September 2016 – Lot 2.

Volume 1.
Lots of smoke, dark, with a body of roasted nuts and singed herbs. A little bit of that Jalisco funk / cheese, a little creamy orange. Ok entry, then it’s a little acrid and hot with more earthy gin references (think Boodles). Decent finish.

Had Chacolo twice before (once in the Wahaka VdM series and the other being a bottle procured from Mis Mezcales in CDMX)…. not this Ensamble though. Sweet corn on the nose, some fresh cut grass and limestone up front, followed by smoke and apricots. Delicious
