Koch Mezcal

Carlos Moreno’s family has been linked to mezcal since the beginning of the 20th century. In 2009, Carlos resumed the family tradition and teamed up with 5th generation maestro mezcalero Pedro Hernandez to create Koch El Mezcal de Oaxaca, with the goal of preserving and promoting mezcal culture. After 10 years of business, they’ve now integrated more than 15 communities and 50 producing families into their collective. Each batch will vary, so check your bottle for details.

There is a lot going on with this ensamble. The minty cirial shines through for me whereas the vegetal tobala remains subtle. There are notes of leather and spice. I have a feeling that time in the bottle will help these flavors mellow over time and help better define the flavors of the individual agaves.

Lot MK006/16ENS. A bit leathery with notes of vanilla, cream, banana, and smoke. All the Koch Mezcal I’ve tasted has been good, and this Ensamble is no exception. There’s a lot going on between the agave, but the result is even keel.
