About this mezcal

Lagrimas de Dolores Masparillo is made with maguey Masparillo (agave maximiliana) by the de la Cruz and Flores families in San Miguel Temoaya. The cooked agave hearts are crushed by hand using machetes and fermented in open pine vats, and then double-distilled in a conical wooden still. This alembique viejo is the traditional method in Durango, essentially a modernized version of the older indigenous tree-trunk stills used long ago in the area by Huicholes and other indigenous groups in Durango.

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.

Mezcalista Fabiola has created a masterpiece here. This mezcal tastes like a desert evening, just after sunset. It’s smooth, almost creamy, definitely vegetal, with a touch of citrus and maybe passionfruit that lingers like the warm rays of sun at twilight. Smoky: yes, but in that distant campfire sort of way, a nostalgic smoke the is present and yet not overwhelming. So far, this is my favorite mezcal by far. I’ll have to save my pennies for another bottle. Love: M-7, Bottle 118/450.

Lote M-10: My personal favourite from Lagrimas. Little minerality with a sweet vanilla taste coating the mouth before being swept away by a vegetal, ginger-like subdued spiciness thats gives away to a satisfying finish. Great work by Fabiola, a great maestra vinatera and a great person

An explosion of herbal, fruity and vegetal freshness at once, this mezcal. Light aroma of charred wood, some grassy herb and pineapple on the nose. Cucumber, water melon rinds, purple gooseberry; raw, green peppercorns, cedar or some aromatic hint of wood. A bit short aftertaste, but nevertheless a striking experience. Unlike all other Maximiliana I have tried. No batch, unfortunately

Lote M-7, botella 184/450

Very nice and milk chocolate-ty with a spine of unique, ripe maguey.
Starts out softer but ends long and a tiny bit dirty, in a good way. Truly delicious.
I’ll come back to this.

This is a very complex and smooth Mezcal.Sweet on the nose (reminds me of the taste of El Jolgorio Tobala, but on the nose), but tastes like an evolving sweet, then vegetal, then black pepperish adventure with a lingering “if drinking volcanic rocks was good” after tone. Definitely a stand out product to sip on.
