About this mezcal

Mezcal Meteoro is made with 100% agave Espadin. It’s made by maestro mezcalero Petronilo Rosario Altamirano in Las Margaritas, Oaxaca. It’s a bold Espadin that has some bright fruity notes and a bit of smoke. It seems as though Meteoro is marketed mostly as mixer, and it’s very good for that purpose.

Meteoro Mezcal

Mezcal Meteoro fell from the sky in February 2012. It's made using traditional Oaxacan production methods. Their marketing is spectacular and their Instagram feed is worth following for entertainment sake. They've done well to market themselves as a unique mezcal and their product is good.

Reminds me of del maguey vida, with a little more smoke. Pretty well balanced, almost no bite on the back end. Could down a bottle of this like water

This is a great espadin that you don’t see very often. The flavor profile is right down the middle: smoke, vanilla, burnt sugar, and lemon. Just the right amount of kick at 45% ABV. It’s made for cocktails but is a good sipper. Four stars considering the price. Batch PCF03-1401

This is a good Espadin. Meteoro is the same NOM as Marca Negra mezcal, so it’s definitely in good company. It’s interesting that this is marketed so heavily as a mixer as it’s 45% ABV. I’ve never had it in a cocktail, and I’m sure it would be fine for that purpose, but it also makes for a good sipper. Very soft and balanced. Lot: PCF03-1401.
