About this mezcal
Leyendas Maguey Jabali is produced by maestro mezcalero Cosme “Tucho” Hernández at his family’s palenque in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca. Don Tucho is a 5th generation mezcalero with over 20 years of experience producing agave spirits.
Mezcal de Leyendas (previously labeled as Mezcales de Leyenda) believes they can improve some of the most marginalized communities in Mexico. They implement the best fair trade practices where they work, and they have many efforts in agave sustainability. Their mezcals come from the different mezcal-producing states. They also have some special edition, small-batch mezcals. The brand also releases the Pelotón de la Muerte line of mezcals.
In 2021, the brand (under Artisanal Distillates, LLC) raised money via the StartEngine platform at a $32.7 million pre-money valuation.

Aromas of butterscotch, brown sugar, and starchy vegetables like carrots and potatoes. The palate has notes of peppermint (specifically Canada mints), menthol, sage, Vick’s VapoRub, jasmine, with a touch of anise. I’ve had other batches of Jabali from Don Tucho, which I didn’t like as much as this. This is a solid Jabali. No batch info on this sample unfortunately.

Nose: A hint of aged, cojita queso. Strong personality on the nose, the sweet, smoky vapors are very asserting.
Palate: A floral sweetness. Nutty and salty. Great limestone/earthy tones. Finish is long, smoky with a seawater aftertaste.
Wow. This Jabali is delicious! Dry roasted peanuts, frangipani flowers, mango, jasmine, pear, incense, and cake frosting. So good!!
