About this mezcal
Los Javis Reposado is made with agave Espadin in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. The agave used to make this mezcal were roasted in an underground oven, crushed by horse drawn tahona, fermented with open air yeasts, and double distilled in a copper pot still. After distillation, this mezcal is aged for six months in used American Oak bourbon barrels.
Los Javis Mezcal
Mezcal Los Javis is a family owned and operated distillery. Their palenque was built in Santiago Matatlan in 1979, and the Los Javis brand was founded in 2003 by Javier Mateo and his wife. The couple made a promise to plant and harvest the highest quality agave to create a mezcal of the finest variety. So fine that it would carry the family name, Javier, for three generations. Father, son, and grandson (all named Javier) began their journey when Javier Senior instilled in his family the quality and heritage of the mezcal making process.

Ok to good for what it is. It’s a low ABV mezcal that is overly saturated with wood to be appreciated as a mezcal. The flavors remind me of Zignum-which isn’t bad, just not traditional mezcal in my book.
Tasted at Baja Bettys (San Diego) November 2021.
best reposado on the market IMO. Notes of carmelized banana, smoke and vanilla/oak. Great to sip or in an old fashioned and a steal around $45-50
