Lagrimas de Dolores Mezcal

Lagrimas de Dolores is made at Hacienda Dolores, which is run by the Gutierrez family and situated about 10 minutes from Durango City. They have a goal of replanting for each of the agave that they use in their mezcal. They report that they have an annual goal of planting around 50,000 agaves. Their bottle was designed in Feuquières, France. The leather on the cap is meant to be a signature feature from Mexican fine-horse culture. Their logo is a representation of Our Lady of Sorrows (latin: Mater Dolorosa) the patron saint of Hacienda Dolores. Their Joven and Anejo mezcal are produced entirely with Agave durangensis, which is endemic to the State of Durango in Northern Mexico. They also have special limited releases that feature rare agave like I'gok, Cimmarion, and Tepemete.

This is an anejo from the first hint. Barrel, age and honey notes hit you before tasting, then you are assured it’s a mezcal with smoke and a touch of new leather. There is a smooth mouth feel with enough agave and some earthy flavours to remind you the origin of the spirit. Caramel and even some coffee and honey notes can be found on the back palate. Without opening mezcal’s barrel and aging debate this is a splendid sipper and worthy of your agave shelf. If you enjoy your tequilas (or other spirit) aged and are looking to dip into mezcal this is a perfect choice. Lot 5.15E. Bottle 27. ABV 40.5%.
