About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Cimarron Puntas is made with Maguey Cimmaron (Agave angustifolia) in the state of Jalisco. Cimarron is one of the fourteen Agave angustifolia grown by this producing family. This agave takes about 10 years to reach maturity, with 3 additional years of capon. 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. This batch of puntas is the first cut from the still with a high ABV.

Chacolo

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.

Bottle 17/49 57.12% abv 37 Liter batch Jan 2023 Lot: 7

A limited special batch of Puntas of Cimarrón produced for Lucas Assis sold by Louie’s Liquor in Azusa, CA.

Nose: Mushroom, funky cheese, bright citrus

Palate: Hot intense heat, soft cheese (brie), tart green fruits like grape, apple, and pear, rock candy, salt brine, and on the back end a bit of the juicy fruit vibe that some expressions from this region can bring. Really enjoyable and so much going in that copita.

Lucas Assis reviewed his special release on social media highlighting the funkiness and fruity qualities. He noted more red fruits in his review, but I get more of the briny quality that Jonny mentions. Well worth seeking out these special Puntas releases from Chacolo.
