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.

Interesting mezcal.. wish I had more than an ounce to dive into. The flavors are kind of compact. Soda syrup, mint, bell pepper, grape. Quite interesting. The Masparillo from this mezcalero is a bit better. 1 oz sample with no lot number; purchased in a Lagrimas de Dolores tasting kit in February 2021.

Very aromatic. Aromas of cherry, peach, burnt toast, and honey. The palate is peppery. Additional notes of anise, aloe, mushrooms, celery, mint, and hemp rope. This is super approachable. Short finish. No batch number on sample.

Botella -3

A very surprising drop from the augustofolia family, very close to a salmiana agave drop( thinking of derrumbes san Liu potosi). Super green, strong notes of moss, celery and peppermint, as it lingers it has mint candy notes and a long smoke finish. A hard drop to find in Australia but one very well worth your time if you can get your paws on it
