About this destilado de agave

Lalocura San Martinero, Tobasiche, Espadin was initially released in the US as part of Agave Mixtape Volume 1. This Agave Mixtape batch is 40% maguey San Martinero, 30% Tobasiche, and 30% Espadin.

Fans of Lalocura are probably familiar with the 50-50 tobasiche-espadín mezcla* that Lalo loves to make, and those who have visited his palenque may have even tried batches his 50-50 san martinero-espadín, which can be a darker, bass-ier version of the tobasiche mezcla. This batch is a rare mezcla from Lalo that included all three. This mezcla showcases the depth and range of Agave karwinskii, adding a bit of body and sweetness to the overall profile by way of Espadín.

*As is the case with all of Lalo’s mezclas, the three varietals were roasted, milled, fermented and distilled together.

Lalocura Mezcal

Before starting Lalocura in 2014, Eduardo "Lalo" Ángeles spent years working as the fourth generation master mezcalero of his family’s brand Real Minero, where he combined a lifetime of working under his father, the late, great Don Lorenzo with a collegiate degree in agricultural engineering. Many Real Minero bottles from several years ago actually have Eduardo listed alongside his father as the master distiller. Lalocura's clay pot distilled mezcals have built a steady cult following over the last few years. People from around the world show up at the palenque in Santa Catarina Minas each day hoping to spend time listening to Lalo tell stories while they taste the 20+ expressions he has resting in glass at any given time. If you like clay pot distilled mezcal and you like Real Minero, it's highly recommended that you find some Lalocura.

Strong aromas of strawberries, red Starbursts, and candy apples. Very sweet and red on the nose. The palate is equally as robust. Notes of flaky croissants, glazed donuts, dates, brown sugar, wet clay, and wet leaves on a cold fall day in New England.

Cinnamon, clove, allspice, nutmeg…baking spices galore. Touch of berries with balanced clay notes. A bit hot at first. If some mezcals are described as green, this one is brown.

Baking spice and salt water. The cinnamon and carmalized sugars really shone through for me. Moderately sweet on the palate though, with hints of tart lime and smoke. A bit hot for me, but still highly polished as expected from Lalo. Solid stuff!

Vintage Lalo. I’ve yet to have anything under four stars from him. Banana bread, cinnamon, clove, allspice, and brown sugar. Absolutely delicious!

Lalo is still one of my favorite producers. Candied yams, passionfruit and juicy fruit gum. Wonderful

Strawberries and cream layered with bright green notes. Crisp, vegetal palate with some baking spices and cracked pepper. Easy heat that rides through a super long finish.
