About this mezcal

Koch Arroqueno is made with 100% wild agave Arroqueno. The agave Arroqueno is significant because of it’s large size.  Typically, this agave can take up to 30 years to mature, before it is pit roasted in a traditional fashion. Given the length of time needed to grow this elegant agave, sustainability of Arroqueno has become a big issue. The Koch Arroqueno is made by Adrian Bautista in Rio de Ejutla, Oaxaca. This mezcal has high fruity notes with hints of earth and herbs, clay and smoke.

Nice Arroqueño with notes of wet earth and lots of tropical fruits. I would like to try more from this brand.

El De Oaxaca bottling – ancestral. Different label than pictured. 49.73%ABV.
Mezcalero: Alberto Vasquez. 15yr old, Sola de Vega region.

Fantastic deep nose, buttercream, Mexcian vanilla, savory meaty earthiness. Ground chocolates, yeast, mousse, truffles, dessicated fruitiness/esters, toasted coconut shavings, tickles of wet grass. Medium-low smoke, good sweetness on palette. Enough minerality, complex, good finish. Really happy with how this one has slightly oxidized and softened. Rich and delicious.
