About this mezcal
El Buho Especial Jabali is made with the wild maguey Jabali in Santiago Matatlan. This agave is tough to work with and many mezcaleros won’t touch it because it foams and expands during distillation, which can be dangerous for the stills. That danger, however, is accompanied by exceptional flavor and profile. This mezcal is only released in incredibly small batches. The agaves in Lot 2 were sourced in Santa Maria Zoquitlan, Oaxaca and the resulting mezcal was rested in stainless steel tanks for 8 months. Maguey Jabali is notoriously difficult to work with along with providing a low sugar content; this mezcal was distilled 4 times in order to get the right flavor and ABV.
