About this destilado de agave

Cuentacuentos Papalote is made by Don Antonio Sonido using 100% Maguey Papalote (Agave cupreata) grown in Plan de la Pila and distilled in the community of Pantitlán. The agaves were cooked underground for 8 days, milled using a 20 horsepower shredder, fermented for 9 days, and then double distilled in copper pots. The final product is adjusted using heads and tails of the distillation run.

Cuentacuentos

Cuentacuentos curates small-batch traditional mezcals and destilados de agave from producers across the state of Oaxaca. Cuentacuentos released its first 6 mezcal expressions in 2018; future releases from the brand will change over time and include non-certified mezcals. The logo and bottle artwork (by artist Cesar Ruiz Conseco) features an opossum or tlacuache in Spanish. The tlacuache on the logo is El Viejito, the little old man opposum who stole mezcal from the demons as a service to humanity. The tlacuache ranks with the jaguar, eagle, and burro in importance in Zapotec, Taina, and Mexican mythologies. Cuentacuentos is bottled under NOM-O20X by Carlos Méndez Blas. The Cuentacuentos motto is Mezcal brings people together, stories make us friends.

Lot:AS007 (could be 001 but since the other 2 reviewers saw 007 I’ll defer to them, my bottle isn’t super clear)
Antonio Sonido is One of my all-time favorite Mezcaleros. I’ve had Mezcal from him through the brands Sanzekan, Aguerrido, Mal Bien, and Cuentacuentos. I’ve never had a bottle that wasn’t fantastic. All of his Mezcals have a chocolatey-ness that I absolutely love! This batch is probably the most chocolatey I’ve ever had. It’s decadent! I absolutely love this one! I wish I had 100 L of this batch!! Chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and a side of chocolate milk. Fig Newtons, medjool dates, and Allspice (Jonny nailed it). After I bought this and tasted it I tried to get more but it was sold out. If you see this buy it!

Lot AS007. 32/132. This bottle is absolutely worth your money. Candied green apple, caramel and chocolate. Tasty long finish. Try bottles with the Sonido family name on them.

Lot AS007. Bottle 32/132. Aromas of plums, red apples, and dates. The palate has some heat with allspice, smoked jalapeño, and fig newtons. Loving these releases from Sonido and this one is great.
