About this mezcal
Espíritu Lauro Joven is an Ensamble of two different agave. It’s made with 70% maguey Espadin, which takes 6-9 years to mature, and 30% maguey Karwinskii, which takes 15 – 17 years to mature. This mezcal is bright and subtly smokey. It has notes of dried herbs and a sweet agave finish that mixes with the tastes of baked jalapenos.

Creamy, smooth river rocks, sugar and citrus, soft and supple in the mouth. No aftertaste. Easy beach sipper, but not too exciting. I have a feeling the San Marteño maguey is the star here, but at only 30% of the blend I’d have liked to try it higher in the mix.
I tried this today and bought a bottle, it was pretty good, looking forward to getting it home and drinking more of it to get a better feel for it. Great price point – $30 per liter (in MX)
Minerals and too much petrol on the nose. The petroly impression on the nose stays on the palate. Smoke starts on the pellet not a lot on the nose. Taste is flat, patrol stays. Not my favorite, but ok.
Light, mineral, cut grass, lemon zest, not earthy or smokey. Surprisingly complex for a lighter, smoother, mezcal.
Soft blend that anyone can stay for a long dinner by zipping straight, don’t mix it, doesn’t need it
