Lagrimas de Dolores Verde

Lagrimas de Dolores Verde is a limited release from Durango, where there is a wide variety of agave that are not found in Oaxaca.

About this mezcal

Lagrimas de Dolores Verde is made with maguey Verde (agave Salmiana). 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.

Initially I agreed with Jonny’s notes. But after revisiting this.. maybe it opened up? Maybe my palate is different tonight. I’m enjoying it. Definitely some funk and not something I’d guess was a Salmiana. Lactic, raw green beans, chlorine salt. 1 oz sample with no lot number; purchased in a Lagrimas de Dolores tasting kit in February 2021.

Aromas of green olives, dry hay, smoked oysters, and soy sauce. The nose is salty. The palate is woody with notes of either plastic or metal. I can’t tell which, maybe both. That chemical flavoring is throughout the tasting experience. This is not my jam. No batch number on the sample.

Bought this after having my mind blown by the Masparillo. This is not as complex and interesting for me, but still something rather special. Given a choice between the two the Masparillo would win for me, but I’d never turn this down. Discovered by chance that it pairs shockingly well with Gorgonzola; sounds odd maybe, but highly recommend.
