About this mezcal

La Luna Tequilana is made with Blue Weber agave, which are more commonly known for their use in Tequila. The agave Tequilana used in this mezcal were farmed and cultivated in Indaparapeo, Michoacan. For lot 2 of this mezcal, the producers cooked an 8 ton batch of agave: 4 tons were regular agave Blue Weber and 4 tons were heirloom Criollo Blue Weber, which are smaller with more sugar and flavor than their bigger counterparts. The agave cooked for 168 hours, rested for 144 hours after cooking, and fermented for 288 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 69 ABV: 48.51%

Nose: get that new car smell, lemonade, classic dry leather from Michoacán

Palate: more lemonade, tangy mango, all sweet and sour fruits, tobacco and leather on the back end. Finish may be my favorite part. Subtle limeade and herbs, bell peppers, more citrus

This is good but not overly complex and interesting. I enjoyed having a bottle as it was easy to reach for and sip on. Reasonable price point also reflects the profile and is competitive.

LOTE: 26, 48.51%, 200ml

Nose – Natural, sweet, and a tiny bit musky; leather, tobacco, wet cigarette butts.

Palate – A strong citrusy opening. Cuties (mandarins), white pepper, sweet corn.

Finish – An amalgamation of sweet and semi-charred flavors; tobacco. Reminiscent of sucking on cigarette filter.

Very flavorful that leans sweet, with an overarching smokiness.
… After a revisit and letting the bottle sit, this turned out to be really great!

* Lot: 70
* ABV: 48.51%

Nose is great, very clean and crisp; ethanol, vanilla, ever so lightly spicy with a hint of smoke.

Wild flowers and roasted corn flavors. Fruity, maybe guava? it’s really a nice rollercoaster of mild flavors. Nice amount of linger on the back side too, fairly well balanced.

Something to keep as an introduction to my tequila drinking friends and the price point is right.

Lote 26 48.12% Aromas out of the bottle are bitter gunpowder and butterscotch Peppermint Pleasant. Sweet spearmint Peppermint flavors 1st hit the tongue And then fades into nothing But a crazy intense mint like tingling sensation remains for a long time. This is crazy good very unique and different from most other mezcals. Herbal and medicinal Mouthwash comes to mind. Sweet eucalyptus. After many tastings I have decided on wet moss with sweet green tea with frog watet

Lote: 21

Warming initial nasal impact.
Lots of tropical fruit and new sneakers on the aroma. Some vanilla follows.
Slight alcohol heat with an oily mouth feel.
Vanilla bean ice cream, white dust from baseball card bubble gum and tropical fruit lead on the flavor. Medium finish with sufficient alcohol with little to no “smoke”, but clay notes develop late.
My first round with this tequilana wasn’t very rewarding, so I didn’t review at the time. It definitely grew on me. Quite enjoyable

Nose – Vanilla cake. New skate shoes (i.e. Vans). Tiny bit of white pepper.

Palate – Black pepper heat that I find with some good blanco tequilas that I like. Guava. Finish is a tad chalky but only for an instant then morphs to clay. A quality tobacco leaf aftertaste.

Mezcalero/mezcaleras sure can work magic with Blue Agave.

Green & sharp smell. Little sour on taste with a slight burn. Taste has some candy, fruit, more green – very pleasant. Slight burn though, but overall very enjoyable! And agree with others – if only tequila could taste like this!

Lot 21. I had a pour of this in a restaurant and promptly bought a bottle for myself. It’s wondrous. The first impression is like tequila, but the best smooth and gentle tequila around. The scent is woody and mossy. The scent gets softer the more you smell it. The taste is so good, changing every 2 seconds in your mouth – bold then a little sour then green then smooth then ends in airy niceness. Quite bold and quite gentle at the same time.

Lot 2. New car smell. Freshly produced interior building materials on the nose. Tastes like blueberries, papaya, and grilled pineapple. Very fruity on the palate in comparison to the nose. I’m super into this batch. If only tequila could taste like this!
