About this mezcal

Luminar Mezcal Reposado is made using agave Tequilana (Azul) in the state of Zacatecas and rested in oak for one year. The brand has ties to the brand Kimo Sabe and it is possible that the mezcal is exactly the same but in a different bottle. This mezcal is sold exclusively at Total Wine & More in the United States as part of their Spirits Direct program.

Luminar Mezcal

Luminar Mezcal uses select agaves grown in the Bajio and on the mountain tops in the state of Zacatecas. According to the brand, 254 farming families in Zacatecas have nurtured their agaves for years bring the world this mezcal. Luminar is exclusively available at Total Wine & More in the United States as part of their Spirits Direct program. The program allows wholesalers to clear spirits for reduced margins enabling Total Wine to sell spirits from smaller producers more profitably.

It should be noted that Luminar Mezcal is likely Kimo Sabe mezcal with a different label. Kimo Sabe filed for the trademark for Luminar Mezcal (source). Both brands also share the same NOM (Norma Oficial Mexicana) which is registered with the Mexican government.

LOT: MLUA-0520-L08
Nose – Oaky, anejo tequila-like aroma. Vanilla. Picking up the slightest alcohol swab note. Besides that, the nose is pretty good.

Palate – Vanilla and oak. The smoke has a hint of burnt brake pad. Salted caramel finish. This is not near as rough as the joven and reposado – the extra aging is a significant improvement. This is a decent option for the price point although there are many anejo mezcals that are tastier (but pricier).

The oak flavoring is nice if you want to taste this on a tequila. To me this ain’t mezcal at all.
