Mezcalero No. 25

Mezcalero No. 25 was double distilled in a copper still before being aged in glass for six years before bottling.

About this mezcal

Mezcalero No. 25 was made with Maguey Tobala (Agave potatorum) in the community of San Baltazar Guelavila. This batch of mezcal was created in March 2013 by maestro mezcalero Don Cosme Hernandez and his son Cirilo. After distillation, this mezcal spent over 6 years resting in glass before being bottled for release.

Mezcalero Mezcal

Each Mezcalero bottling is true to the fundamental batch nature of artisan Mezcal production. Each bottling is distilled from a single integral batch of agaves that are at least 50% wild or semi-wild, and usually 100%. These “silvestre” agaves take a lot of work to harvest: searching for days in the mountains, packing the agaves back on burros. After that, it takes a month of continuous labor to produce a single batch of Mezcalero, usually 600-700 bottles. Mezcalero is both a brand and an intention. The brand is a way for talented artisan distillers to work with, and gain part of their livelihood from, some very special agaves. The intention goes deeper: to help preserve a way of distilling that is also a way of life, deeply linked to the distiller’s family, to his social environs, to his pueblo, to an entire way of life largely deriving from indigenous culture that is at risk of rapid deterioration under pressure from the modernization of Mexico.

One of those that is so easy to drink the whole bottle..Banana, marjoram spice, mint, hint of dark chocolate.

I’ve been wanting to join mezcal reviews for a while. This bottle is the reason I finally did.

The first pour from the bottle wasn’t my favorite, but I couldn’t articulate the reason. I revisited after a couple of days and realized that this mezcal coats the palate with pure banana runts. I’m not generally a banana fan, but this one goes deeper, revealing an herbaceous quality that delights with depth. There’s tarragon, fennel frond and spicy sage. I can’t stop going back to find more!

This is an excellent Tobala. After six years in glass the flavors are very well integrated and just plain delicious. Sandalwood, banana bread, chocolate chips, and fresh mint. This is a definite crowd pleaser. I’m absolutely blowing through this bottle.

This is an intricate Tobala that is excellently distilled by one of my favorite Maestros Don Cosume Hernandez and his son Cirial. This Mezcal takes on notes of tropical fruit, wild flowers, honeydew melon, and orange blossom. The profile is clean on the tongue with a subtle dissipation of flavor with each sip.
