About this raicilla

“Tabernas” are small scale raicilla distilleries who use artisan methods and their distillers are known as “taberneros.” La Venenosa Raicilla Tabernas is a special line at a price point that can be sipped or used for cocktails. Each Edition of Tabernas is slightly different. Check your bottle for the specific production details.

This reposado is similar to the joven releases, however it was rested in wooden barrels for just 3 months, giving the mezcal a very light touch of wood, vanilla, and caramel notes.

La Venenosa Raicilla

Raicilla has been produced for over 500 years in the Mexican state of Jalisco, Mexico. Jalisco offers a plethora of agave species, second only to Oaxaca, however the Tequila made in Jalisco can only be made with the blue agave. Raicilla from Jalisco can be made with many different types of agave that are scattered across the landscape. These, along with great diversity in terroir, equipment and techniques, give Raicilla an amazing spectrum of flavor and history.

La Venenosa Raicilla range was created by Chef Esteban Morales to bring these hidden jewels to the global market. Esteban traversed the state in search of the best producers in each region. Every one of these Raicilla expressions is unique; created by different Maestro Taberneros in distinct regions, from different species of agave using diverse techniques, the individual results are astounding. Due to the relatively raw nature of Raicilla production, the ABV of each La Venenosa may vary slightly by batch.

44.8% abv, didnt get lot number

Review #136: On the nose is vanilla, caramel, leather, sweet tobacco, and plum.
The palate has plum, raisin, luxardo cherry, vanilla, leather, and on to the finish with some sweet campfire smoke, cinnamon, and tobacco.

I had lower expectations for this, but it was actually pretty good. The sherry cask influence on this is fun. The agave is a bit overpowered by the sherry, so it’s not very mezcal-like, but I still like the resulting spirit as itself. There’s not too much wood age coming through on this compared to the sherry. Definitely worth trying a pour of to taste an interesting aged mezcal.
