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. 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.

Lot 01/MNGO, distilled May 2018. Very dominant taste of ripe mango. It’s sweet and mellow and very pleasant; a perfect dessert mezcal. However, it’s slightly one-dimensional – I prefer the Mezcalosfera Espadín con Mango y Chile Habanero, where the spice of the habanero balances the sweetness of the mango. Still, this is good!

I like the bottle, lol. Hefty oversized hip-flask, and the owl drawing shimmers in some lights.

Upon pouring it has aromas of ripe but uncut mango among delicate notes of cooked agave and a touch of sandlewood smoke. Simple bouquet smells nice – if not a bit subdued – I started seeing fruit flies shortly after pouring. Taste is simple and full succinctly of candied but fresh white and green peppers, with a medium-ripe mango showing in the mid-palate. In fact, I worried it would have been either overdone or boring after this point of the taste. The espadin distillate presence and mango notes are integrated better than I had expected. Aftertaste of mango pulp, saline, slate, and a familiar hint of smokey incense that grows more apparent after emptying the glass.

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.
