About this mezcal

El Buho Especial Mango is produced by Octavio Jimenez Monterroza in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca using agave Espadin. The agaves are crushed by a horse-drawn tahona, cooked for 7 days in a stone oven, and fermented for 8 days in pine vats. This unique batch of mango mezcal is made by adding ripe mangos to the third distillation, much like the style of pechuga mezcal, only without any animal meat. The additional sugar content from the mangos results in a higher proof spirit in the third distillation. This mezcal has a bright nose of ripe mango followed by a smooth agave notes reminiscent of a pechuga. The finish is cooked agave with green pepper notes.

El Buho Mezcal is a small batch mezcal that is made in the heart of Oaxaca. Their mezcal is produced by the same family that produces Fidencio.

Very faint aromas of sweet tropical juice. The palate is FULL of mango! Holy smokes. The mango really shines on this. It’s thin, like other vegan pechugas, but I love mango and this totally rocks my world. This is like biting into a ripe mango.

Rich mango nose. The ripe mango flavors shine through the mezcal perfectly. Sweet and fruity with an soft agave Espadin backdrop. Some mezcal fans might this this is gimmicky and it might be but damn it is tasty.
