About this mezcal

El Jolgorio Tobaziche is made with the rare agave Tobaziche, which is a member of the Karwinskii family. This agave takes about 14 years to mature before it is ready for harvest. Master Mezcalero Pedro Vasquez is widely known for the incredible mezcal he creates, and this mezcal is no exception. It carries deep notes of pine, green bananas, lime peel, and a hint of tar that mixes with clean smoke. This mezcal is somewhat rare. If you see it, try it.

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.

Edition 1, 2014 harvest (clear bottle)

N: hay, weird peanut butter whiff (not in a bad way, just unexpected), nail polish fading to soft pine, very faint melon perhaps with chocolate banana accents
P: mossy pine, verdant, slight green pepper, smooth, saturated back end
F: pinecone crackle and detectable, pleasant heat
S: really enjoyable and my first el jolgorio offering. Won’t be my last. 8.87/10

Edition 5/2017/350 bottles/48%ABV.
Just like previous editions of this mezcal, it is very grassy on the nose with hints of lime. Wet pine needles also comes through. A little hotter on the finish than I would have expected for 48%. Very enjoyable overall

Whoah nelly! Balanced, tip toeing the line between sharp and sweet. Slight citrus, tons of earthiness… wonderful

Black bottle (silvestre), ed. 4, harvest 2016 from Pedro Vasquez. Batch: PVOTZ201317EJ.

I’m sure I’ll come back to refine these notes – intense smell of the inside of a cave – wet gravel, must. Acorn squash, summer squash, pine needles and juniper indeed. An intense green heat but well balanced. On the palette, agave sweetness swells to an amazing body that’s much more approachable and enjoyable than the esoteric nose might imply. Entirely unique, engaging, drinkable – everything I look for in a spirit.

Very enjoyable though a bit pricey.
It smells of Christmas trees and pine cones, vanilla, tar, banana soap and cookies. Dark chocolate on the palate. Great personality/character.

Scent: 4/5
Mouthfeel: 3/5

This was series 02 2014 bottle 363/640 by Pedro Vasquez. Small production and quite expensive. Definitely grassy nose. Very hot on the mouth and a similarly hot finish. The flavors are there, but to keep within the Karwinskii family and the brand, I followed this up with the Jolgorio Barril 04 2014 1338/1640 by Ignacio Parada. Smoother, delightful smokiness, just seemed better made at a little over half the cost. 48.6 vs 48.2 ABV so that wasn’t really a factor.

Very grassy and vegetal on the nose. Bursting with sweetness, honeyed agave, and zucchini. There is some nice pine and lime here with notes of dry wood. Delicious juice. Edition 1 from 2014. 47.8% ABV.

The nose on this thing is a bit crazy. It has some grassy vegetal aromas and notes of lemon zest, orange fruit, and fresh flowers. Very perfumed nose. The palate is balanced and complete. Great mezcal!
