About this mezcal

La Luna Espadincillo is made with maguey Espadincillo in Etucuaro, Michoacan which is home to other Michoacan mezcal producers as well. The agave piñas are fire roasted in a stone-lined horno using estate sourced white oak. The cooked agave is milled by hand and naturally fermented in open-air wooden vats before being double distilled in a copper and pinewood Tarascan still. Due to the artisanal nature of this mezcal, the ABV will vary by batch.

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 146
48.51% ABV
Purchased this direct from La Luna and had it shipped to a MX address.
Pro tip: let this sit for 30 mins after pouring.

Nose: smells like a bag of confectioners sugar, boozy ethanol, stewed agave, light oak smoke
Taste: explosion of sweetness – a blend of white and green tic tacs, vanilla buttercream, and cinnamon stick. Extremely impressed by this one. The sweetness was really prominent and one of the sweetest mezcales I’ve ever had. This would be a nice after dinner sipper mezcal due to its minty sweetness – it simultaneously saturates and cleanses the palate. Considering the price of MXN 750, one of the best mezcales I’ve ever had.

Lote 81, 48.51% abv

Review #21: vanilla, honey, caramel, sweet cream, light pear, white chocolate, powdered sugar, and some light florals on the finish. This is somewhat basic and delicate but it does taste very nice. Above average overall but just doesn’t have a wide profile of flavors

Lote: 67
Nose – Sugar cookies, oven roasted green pepper, citrus and mild smoke.

Palate – Orange peel, cooked agave and a lingering smooth menthol mint finish with a hint of smoke.

Highly recommended for beginners or introducing people to Mezcal, especially for the price.

Lote: 49
Nose – Icing sugar. Tad bit of toffee. Grassy.

Palate – White chocolate. Cinnamon bun. An artichoke vegetal note. A very long – sweet and grassy – finish. I picked this up for less than $50 in California. Great value for this quality mezcal.

Lot 67. This one is a real sweetheart. Roasted agave, brown sugar, and something slightly vegetal/green pepper-like in the distance. I like it. Being able to pick this one up locally is also huge.

Lote: 67. I like this brand a lot, so I’ve been looking forward to trying this new addition to their core lineup. I think it’s delicious, it’s pretty reasonably priced as well so I’m definitely going to pick up a bottle for myself. It reminded me of the Chino expression because I got some deep sweet caramel flavor like caramelized agave hearts, also vanilla frosting, cinnamon churros, white Tic Tac’s, and fresh pears. It’s a winner for sure.
