About this raicilla
Mexicat Raicilla is a clay-oven roasted raicilla that is hand-distilled using 100% agave Maximiliana. Mexicat uses an igloo-shaped clay oven. They build a big fire inside and let it burn until the wall of the oven is very hot. They then rake out the embers and seal the agaves inside for 2 days; a batch is 3.5 tons. Fermentation is by wild yeasts in 200-liter tinas and takes 5-8 days. Mexicat’s José Salcedo, a third-generation raicillero, double-distills in a copper-lined pot.
Mexicat is a brand based in Guadalajara, Jalisco. In addition to mezcal, they have a Mexicat tequila, wine, beer, sotol, and raicilla. While the brand is based in Jalisco, their spirits and other products are curated from throughout Mexico.

Batch lot R003
Light, racy. Mint, juicy fruit gum, wet stones, cream cheese. Pleasant but lacking some heft.
This is a bit light at 40% ABV. There are notes of soft mint, granny smith apple water, and sour cream. The finish is a bit of warm orange candy.
