About this mezcal

La Luna Chino is made with wild agave Cupreata. The agave used in this mezcal are all capon, meaning that they were castrated and left in the field for an extended period of time before being harvested. The agave cooked for 168 hours, rested for 144 hours after cooking, and fermented for 240 hours.

La Luna Mezcal

La Luna Mezcal is made in Etucuaro, Michoacan. Tucked away in this mountainous region is the municipality of Villa Madero, which is the home to the Perez Escot family and Destiladora Las Azucenas.  The family has been traditionally crafting mezcal on the same property since 1910 and is currently on their 4th generation of mezcaleros with Isidro Perez Escot training his son Amador at the moment.

Lot 40 97.02 proof

Nose: citrus, that nice lemonade quality mentioned by others, nice grassy summery bright note, light salt, everything really well blended in one pleasant experience

Palate: fruity, citrus, nice viscosity, almost a lemon berry ice box pie, seamless transition from the nose

Finish: switches into pleasant smoke, lingering notes from the palate but brought down into the earthen range which gives it some nice depth. Great bottle! Shoutout to zacks channel for the recommendation

Fragrant nose of cotija cheese, spicy green pepper, and papaya. Flavor is strawberry, fresh panela, and toasted soft wood. Full bodied and oily in the mouth. Smoke lingers a long time after the sip is gone.

Lote: 3 (Bottle: 436/645)
Nose – Huge pink lemonade blast. Melted brown sugar.

Palate – Even more, sweet and tart, pink lemonade – it’s great! The middle to finish is kind of meaty – a very smoky beef jerky. I love the bold flavors and the big, peppermint style heat. The smoke throughout is nice though, like a fine cigar and some floral notes in the aftertaste.

Lot 3. I love this!! What Jonny said about the palate was exactly my first impression, big and rich and full!! Roast agave, brown butter, walnuts, pine, raspberries, red starburst candy, anise, green bell pepper, roses, incense, and menthol cigarettes. Excellent!

Lemon pine sol and a medium roast with tropical fruit and agave on the nose. Bright and fruity palate with anise, pepper and a touch of mint in the finish.

Lot 3. Aromas of pink lemonade, peach, and lime. The Palate is big, rich, and full. Reminiscent of post-modern design, lemonade, and Cuban cigars.
