About this mezcal

El Jolgorio Mexicano smells of roasted agave and maple. It is made agave Mexicano (also known as Dobadaan in other communities), which grows to be quite large. This Mezcal is straightforward and right down the middle with hints of light smoke, citrus, and peppers.

El Jolgorio Mezcal

Traditional, artisanal Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies and festivities - known as "Jolgorios" - in villages in Oaxaca, México. El Jolgorio Mezcals are made exclusively from different species and varieties of wild and semi-wild harvested agave by Maestro Mezcaleros in local villages in Oaxaca, and are twice distilled in copper pot stills. On every bottle is inscribed the species of agave, the age at harvest, the village of production, the name of the Maestro Mezcalero, and the batch and lot number so as to truly connect the drinker with the land, people, and plants at the heart and soul of our Mezcal. Each lot may have different information. Check your bottle for details.

Would have liked to have given this 3.75/5. Didnt care for the finish. Smell was also a little light for me.

Solid but not worth the price. Would rather go with the Marca Negra

edition 6, 2014, 47.1% abv, ignacio parada. smells like a warm greenhouse full of agave and rocks, with a waft of boozy sweetness somewhere between acetone and floral notes. quite nice on the nose. light and smooth on the palate. vegetal sweetness, slightly toasty, mineral-heavy finish. leaves a nice aftertaste. very pleasant all around. trying not to let my love of other mexicano expressions weigh on my ranking of this. this is an easy 4, but relative to other mexicanos i’ve had that are among my favorites (mezcalero special #2, marca negra, vago), this verges on negligible. more a testament to how good those other ones are than anything else.

Delicate nose, slight funky quality. Really velvety/creamy in the mouth. Alcohol and menthol on the finish isn’t hot but lends itself to a mild hum.

Edicion 07 2014 329/800. Definitely in another class compared to the Rey Campero Mexicano. This one is clay, in a good way, like it was distilled from earth instead of a plant. Aroma on the nose is fantastic. I will be interested to compare this to the Marca Negra Dobadan, which has several fans as well.

2014. Bottle117/850. Batch 05. Very nice indeed. Slightly smoky and sweet on the initial nose. I detect jalapeños and cotton candy on the palate. Really smooth and easy to drink. Enjoyed this one.

2013. Batch 003-Mex. Bottle 167/360. This is spicy and very vegetal on the nose. On the palate, this is super grassy, like a fresh summer morning with notes of pollen and wet flowers. This is really, really good. There’s nothing too overpowering and it settles well after the sip is finished.
