Don Amado Tripon, Barril, & Bicuishe is produced by the renowned Arellanes family, who have been crafting mezcals since the late 1700s.

About this mezcal

Don Amado Tripon, Barril, Bicuishe is made in the small town of Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. This town is well-known for their clay pot distillation that has been practiced in the community for generations.

Don Amado Mezcal

Don Amado’s mezcaleros carefully handcraft all of their mezcals from 100% mature highland agave plants. After roasting the hearts of these premium agaves in wood-burning earthen pits, the plants’ treasured juices are distilled in traditional Oaxacan ceramic-and-bamboo pot stills. This unique distillation method gives Don Amado mezcals their distinctive smoky flavor and herbal bouquet, while proudly honoring a sixteenth-century production tradition native to the state of Oaxaca.

Lot 100, 46% abv., no bottle info

Picked up a 375 ml bottle at Louie’s Liquor in Azusa, CA. Creamsicle and white peach on the nose, lots of sweetness. Strong heat upfront, flavors come on the backend, red hots, a bit of creaminess, and stewed apples. Lots of karwinskii flavors, some of those fall fruits shining through and hints of baked yams or sweet potatoes. There may be something to Jonny’s tobacco and hay notes as well.

Lot 63. Bottle 123. A bit yeasty on the nose. Aromas of raw bread dough, uncooked grits, and uncooked potatoes. Some of the raw-ness on the nose moves into flavor notes of hay, dried coffee beans, and tobacco. It’s very dry tasting, and there’s a sticky viscous-like texture that is nice and full.
