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.

46% ABV, Batch: May, 2019
My wife purchased this bottle at Tahona Mercado in San Francisco in May 2022. I have had several of these Mezcalero releases and they are pretty special and unique. And to be frank, a few have been stellar and among the best mezcal that I have been lucky enough to enjoy. This ensemble is simply fantastic: sweetness from the espadin, floral notes from the jabalí, and a depth of flavor from the tepeztate, wow! I would add more exclamation points, but you get the idea. I get watermelon jolly rancher up front, a kiss of peach and grapefruit, and heat that hangs around like a warm summer evening. So incredibly delicious. Not sure I tasted the strawberry or anise that Jonny and COak mentioned, but I fully agree that this release is unique and robust. Will have to revisit (with my wife’s blessing of course). Got get a bottle if you can get your hands on one or get a sample if you can find one at your local mezcaleria.

This is the kind of mezcal that perks you up. Nose of butterscotch and citrus. On the palate it’s got melon, grape and anise. It’s syrupy with a semi spicy finish. Pretty unique.

Aromas of white pepper, caramel, lime, and chalky minerals. The palate has strong notes of strawberries along with other medicinal/herbal qualities. This tastes like the best medicine I’ve ever had. It’s big, robust, and rich. A very long finish.
