About this destilado de agave

Chacolo Ixtero Verde is made with Maguey Ixtero Verde (Agave angustifolia) in the state of Jalisco. Ixtero Verde 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.

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.

This is the best mezcal I have ever tried.
The aroma notes are very sweet almost like bubble gum / candy. On the palate I pick up savory notes of mesquite bbq flavor, followed by black pepper & slight char. Subtle mineral water finish at the end

Vol. 7, April 2020, Lot 001. Bottle 121 of 162.
Chacolo always hits it out of the park, but the Ixtero Verde is probably my favorite from their entire line. Sweet aromas of lemon curd and Cool Whip, along with the faint hint of peanut butter M&Ms. An ethereal palate opens up with Brach’s strawberry bon-bons, followed by increasingly savory flavors: barrel-aged balsamic vinegar, smoked paprika, turkey giblet gravy, and the char on the grates of a well-used grill. Lingering hard candy on the finish slowly gives way to the gentle minerality of well water and the dying embers of an overnight campfire. Magnificent!

April 2020, Lote: 001?(of 2020 perhaps?), 121.5 L, Bottle 89/162, Vol. 7 Ixtero Verde Capon 3 años

The nose on this thing! A bit difficult to place all the aromas, but at first I was getting freshly ground peanut butter and boysenberry jam, then it evolved into piñuela and butterscotch before finally throwing in some strawberry lemonade?! Insane. The palate flavors are polar opposite, however: christmas gravy, umami, black pepper, BBQ sauce, and vinegar. Have not had anything like this in awhile.

Distilled in April 2019. Super sweet and candied nose. Aromas of bubblegum, cherry Airheads, Jolly Ranchers, and Nerds. This smells like the candy I’d be eating at a movie theatre at age 13. The palate is quite a bit different. Notes of sweet barbeque sauce, gravy, chipotle, and champagne. This is phenomenal.
