About this mezcal

Clase Azul Mezcal is made with 100% wild agave Cenizo, which takes 12-15 years to mature. The agave Cenizo grows somewhat abundantly in Durango, where this mezcal is made. Clase Azul follows the same traditional palenque distillation process as any other artisinal mezcal. One impressive point about this mezcal is that the agave is milled by hand, rather than using a donkey and tahona.

Clase Azul Mezcal

Clase Azul makes tequila and they one mezcal. Mezcal Clase Azul is made in the state of Durango where the extreme climate, the rich minerals of its soil, and the source of natural springs in the area, give particular force and complexity to its notes, making it a different mezcal than what is produced elsewhere Mexico.

As a fan of the Clase Azul tequila I was excited to try their mezcal, but it ended up being quite a let down. It has a flat taste – almost as if watered down, there are so many better mezcals out there especially for the price.

My absolute favorite Mezcal. Soft mineral notes and elegant smoke versus over-the-top, in your face smoke. Too many mezcals taste like they’ve added liquid smoke. Not this one! Beautiful hints of chocolate. A slice of orange on the side goes perfectly!

Has a funky taste. Was not enjoyable at all. Maybe I just don’t know. I wasted $200.

Didn’t get to catch the lot number on this one. I ordered it at a Mexican restaurant that also carried Mestizo, and considering the cost, I wish I had ordered the Mestizo. It’s enjoyable, but for the $200+ price tag for a bottle, it’s not worth it. This is way over-priced, and I imagine most of the cost goes toward the fancy bottle. There are way better mezcals to be ordered. This one is way too expensive and not good enough to warrant the cost.

I had a sample of this at La Condesa – it was quite delicious! I remember it having a bright, pleasant minerality and a light smokiness. It was pleasantly smooth all the way through the palate, yet it had some nice complexity as well. At $220 a bottle, I won’t be rushing out to get this one, but I did thoroughly enjoy the sample.
