About this mezcal

Creyente Joven is made with agave Espadin. It’s a blend of two different mezcals from Tlacolula and Yautepec, Oaxaca. The two mezcals are produced traditionally, but separately. Following the distillation process, the mezcals from both regions are blended together before bottling. The mezcal has a smoky aroma, with notes of lemon peal, black pepper, and ripe mango.

Creyente Mezcal

Mezcal Creyente was launched in the summer of 2016 by the tequila giant José Cuervo. They currently market a single blended mezcal to the international market. Creyente means "believer" in Spanish, as the brand was founded on the belief that anything is possible.

A friend gave me a bottle some time back. Knowing it was made by Jose Cuervo I expected it to be a flavorless industrial bottling. Not quite. It is simple and straightforward, with the usual smoke and citrus overtones. I would not call it a sipper. It does the job in cocktails.

Not much happening here. Expected worse but it’s not gross, just bland. Sugary agave, water, and lime notes. Kind of a 1.5 stars given the average price of $50/bottle. Lot 001-15.

A friend brought a bottle and we tried this last night. We were pleasantly surprised. Very floral and fruity up front. Surprisingly smooth for sipping with not a lot of attack. Will likely pick up a bottle and try making some drinks.

Not the worst upfront with typical smokey agave notes. Very simple tasting which could work in a cocktail but the finish has a taste of flat tonic water that I can’t get past.

This mezcal surprised me. I had very low expectations before tasting it given it’s relation to Jose Cuervo. Sipped neat, it’s relatively fruit-forward and very oily with notes of black pepper, nail polish, and sweet agave. I honestly expected this to be a lot worse. I still wouldn’t recommend it neat, as it was better when used in a cocktail.
