About this mezcal

La Luna Ponche Navideño is a special holiday release of La Luna’s Espadincillo. Made with maguey Espadincillo in Michoacan, this mezcal is distilled with cane, apples, guava, cranberries, dried cherries, tejocote, tamarind, piloncillo, and cinnamon. These fruits and spices create a mezcal experience similar to a traditional Christmas punch.

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.

This was super complex. Lots of cinnamon, like too much cinnamon. Overwhelming. But fascinating. Lots fruit and warming spices. I would recommend trying this but I’m giving a 2 star review because it was not for me, personally.

Batch #114
Nose: apples, cider, guava, brown sugar, tepache, light cheese; mi espos got raisins and cinnamon as well.

Palate: vanilla, nutty, slightly piney, but mostly just bright, sweet and round. I’m left with a mouth full of earth, clay, and a touch of pear when it’s all said and done.

Really pleasant bottle. Nothing jumps out as the star but rather a cohesive sipping experience. Definitely look for this if you’re a fan of a sweet and warm pour.

Lote 114, 48.51%, evidently distilled with a bunch of fruit.

Quite unique, vanilla, pine, reminds me of New Mexico. Nose is complex. I give this 4.5 because the flavor is so unique, with the pine tempered by the sweet vanilla. This one will work great in a flight with a couple other Lunas.
