About this mezcal

La Luna Manso Sahuayo is made with agave Manso Sahuayo (sometimes called Manso de Sahuayo or Sahuayensis or Cenizo). The agave for this mezcal were harvested from the area of Jiquilpan and Sahuayo, Michoacan. While this agave can grow wild, the agave used in this mezcal were cultivated. The agave cooked for 121 hours, rested after cooking for 144 hours, fermented for 12 days, and were distilled in a copper “cazo” and pinewood still.

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.

Fanta orange soda! With hints of Romano cheese on the nose. Sweet and creamy. Quite unlike any other typical agave spirit. Reminds me of a very subtle orange liqueur on the palate with some lime on the finish. Well worth looking for this if you want something different.

Orange and lemon peel with some tropical fruit on the nose. Thinking Country Time Lemonade. Creamy mouthfeel, this is bright with agave notes and some mint. Great heat through a long finish, really enjoyable.

Lot 1. Smells incredible! Aromas of strawberry lemonade. Sour with some additional hints of cotton candy on the nose. The palate is almost identical to the nose. Tastes like pink lemonade and Popsicle, like a very high ABV shandy. Very big and bright. I dig it.
