Leyendas Mezcal

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.

Lot L1/21
Definitely get the apple on the nose as Jonny points out. On the palate I don’t get so much of that smoky round Tobala I usually look for. More fruity and medicinal. Lemongrass yes! It slightly reminds me of the Siembre lemongrass distilled mezcal. Would not guess this was a Tobala if tasted blind.

Fresh fruity aromas. The nose has notes of McIntosh apples, strawberries, and charred wood. The palate has a medicinal quality to it, with notes of anise, red cough medicine, lemongrass, and cinnamon. This is an interesting Tobala.

This surprised me. For me, Tobalas can be all-over-the-place and this one is no exception.. the place it lands is very unique and tasty but not overly fruity. There are notes of copper, candy apple, smoke, and complex sweet minerals. I dig this but wouldn’t necessarily guess it was a Tobala (again, they are all different). I’d like to try an Espadin from Aarón Robles.
