Corte Vetusto Mezcal

Corte Vetusto mezcal is hand-crafted by Juan Carlos Gonzalez Diaz, a 4th generation Zapotec Maestro Mezcalero. The art of mezcal making was passed down through the generations since his great grandfather, Don Mauro. The name of the brand Corte Vetusto means "the ancient cut" and comes from an old story about a master mezcalero's desire to create a cut of mezcal so divine that it invokes the spirit of generations before him. That sacred distillation of earth, fire and history is the Corte Vetusto.

I am a Mescal fan of long standing and as this particular maker and mark has been very favourably reviewed I ordered two bottles. Good grief. What a mistake. To say this has a ‘subtle smoke’ is to claim Hitler was a bit anti-semitic. This is undrinkable. Opening the bottle is like being thrown on a bonfire. It is a headache in a glass. Horrible.

Love the brand story and packaging. Subtle enough for sipping and equally good in cocktails.

Lot: ES-1608 Bottle: 689 / 870 … cooked with mesquite wood … I was apprehensive about the use of mesquite … but am more than pleasantly surprised … subtle all the way through. Flavors of black pepper and mint join the roast. Pleasant long finish with a hint of citrus … grows with each sip. 44% AbV

Really great presence on the nose and a good long pallet. Excellent balance of beautifully roasted agave sweetness, vegetal notes, a bit of spice and lingering gentle smoke.

smell isn’t very strong, if anything it’s similar to acetone. smokiness is subtle and there is an overall bitter flavor that i am not a fan of. it is smooth and crisp on the palate, just not a fan of the flavor profile.

Sweet aromas with a bit of smoke…somewhat watery with hints of broccoli, lettuce, and almonds….very soft and light….not a ton of character….probably better for cocktails than for sipping
