About this mezcal

Lagrimas de Dolores Sierreño is made with maguey Sierreño (agave Wocomabi). The agave are roasted in an underground oven and mechanically milled. They are then fermented in open-air pine tanks and distilled in copper pot stills.

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.

200ml
Botella 81/240
47% ABV Sierreno (agave wocomahi)
Very prickly, drying impact on the nose.
Eucalyptus, melon and wet slate on the aroma.
Flavor picks up the eucalyptus (although a bit on the burnt side) with flint, pickle and dill. Melon rind hits on the back end. Some hint of overdone brisket bark (in a good way) leads the way for the “smokiness”. Not an introductory mezcal. Those experienced mezcal drinkers will be wide-eyed at this hard to find agave and appreciate it’s uniqueness. I’ve only had two mezcals from here, but they have been very unique and rewarding pours

There are notes of dry white wine vinegar along with Martinelli’s (sparkling apple juice). Apple skins too. There is some nice viscosity here and rounded fruit sweet flavors on the finish. Wasn’t sure what the expect with this one but I enjoy it. Overall on the dry yet fruity side of the flavor spectrum. Lot 1-W.

Lot 1-W. Bottle 34. Aromas open up considerably in the glass. A bit hot on the nose with aromas of lead, slate, creosote, iodone, and gun powder. Also some sweet vanilla and Rambutan fruit aromas as well. The palate is super peppery. Flavors of freshly ground black peppercorns, jalapeno spice, and raw chalky minerals. There’s a floral, aromatic quality to this that is nice. Slightly men’s-cologne or aftershave in character. Hot but enjoyable.
