About this sotol

Maguey Melate Cucharillo from Agustin Guendulain Maya was originally released as the October 2021 Mezcalero of the Month Club spirit. This Cucharillo was produced in San Luis Amatlan, Oaxaca.

Maguey Melate

Maguey Melate was founded on two ideas: 1) Artisanal agave spirits are amazing and should be shared with the world, and 2) The faster-cheaper economy is a harmful force for people, the environment, and now agave spirits.

They believe if mezcal (and agave spirits) can be understood and appreciated at its full potential, people will show their preference for quality artisanal mezcal that is sustainably and fairly sourced. By raising consumer consciousness on the origins of mezcal and educating enthusiasts on matters of quality and character, informed people will be empowered to ensure the future of mezcal. To do this, they're reaching a large audience with an impactful message: KEEP MEZCAL ARTISANAL!

Maguey Melate is perhaps most well-known for their Mezcalero of the Month Club, which delivers artisanal small-batch agave spirits directly to the doors of consumers in the US and Mexico. In addition to the monthly spirits, they offer exclusive content and interviews with producers. Single releases are also available in the Maguey Melate shop.

Not my favorite. If this is indicative of Sotol then I might shy away. Aroma is good with floral and fruity goodness. There is even some dusty minerality that is quite pleasant. Taste is where this one falls off. Entry is ok with some good taste and heat but the back of my mouth almost puckers up with some acrid bitterness. That same bitterness continues on the finish. The finish does linger and mellows with good heat and roasted peppercorns. I am happy to have tried this Palm Distillate although I don’t prefer it.
