About this mezcal

El Tinieblo Añejo is produced using traditional methods by mezcalero Don Baltazar Cruz in the state of Tamaulipas. The agaves are cooked in an earthen pit, crushed with a tahona, and the fermented in open air wooden vats. Next, the spirit is doubled-distilled in copper stills and adjusted to a final ABV of 40%. This añejo is aged for up to 2 years in American White Oak wooden barrels previously used for bourbon.

El Tinieblo Mezcal

El Tinieblo is a sustainability-first artisanal mezcal brand and a unique brand in that they are completely self-reliant. Rancho El Tinieblo is a 9,000 acre farm in the state of Tamaulipas where El Tinieblo grows their agave with no pesticides or insecticides. For every agave harvested, El Tinieblo plants 25 new agaves. The mezcal is produced using traditional methods and then bottled in 100% recycled glass hand-blown bottles. The ranch has been producing spirits since 1865 and has, for the most part, remained unchanged. In 1998, it came under the ownership of Alfredo Perez Salinas and the spirits began being marketed under the new brand and the Tinieblo name. The one major change that occurred was the introduction of exotic African animals such as zebras, wildebeest, oryx, water buffalo and watusi, who now roam the ranch.

Wow! This aged mezcal has such a refined structure that I had to taste again and again. A palate of vanilla, bourbon and cacao leads to a finish of cigar smoke and caramel. This is a great sip-

El Tinieblo Anejo just is an ultra premium in a class of its own. Its smokiness is extremely subtle, and combines exquisitely with the flavors it picks up from the bourbon cask where it resides for two years. You cannot say “It tastes like…” because there is no taste to liken it to. My absolute favorite!
