About this destilado de agave

No Brand Lechuguilla from Dolores Gonzales Torres was produced using Agave shrevei in Batopilas, Chihuahua. The agaves were crushed by hand with an ax, fermented in a single underground fermentation vat made over 100 years ago, and distilled with a still made from Higuera wood (dense pinewood more or less). This is a single 250 liter batch.

No Brand

No Brand is… well… not a brand. Their importer told us: “Our goal of the brand is to keep it simple so there will not be much information or publicity behind it. No websites, social media, or awards, just a good product in a bottle with masking tape on it. Just like the great stuff you find in the palenques in Mexico that the maestro mezcalero shares with you.”

Nose: slight earth and almost yeasty, banana bread, some honeydew melon, after reading it I definitely understand the fresh milk Jam references

Palate: Banana, big time banana, some melon, lime, some nice dust and minerality on the back. Finish is great. Slate, lemongrass, bitter citrus, sits with you for a while. Chalky on the mouthfeel

Lovely stuff

Was sipping a sour raicilla before this and very happy at the change of pace. The Lechuguilla has a nice overriding sourdough bread note with some flavors of lime rind and cherry water. Jonny nailed it with the anise and coconut. It is an interesting spirit and very chill on the palate ABV-wise. It is giving off some really good vibes — transporting you to a small agave spirits distillery. Definitely peaks my interest in visiting Chihuahua. Give this one a sip.

Absolutely love this stuff. Came across it randomly and was able to get my hands on a few. This is a great everyday sipper for me. Has the smokiness, herbs, and the fruits that all tie it together. Overall, bubblegum.

Aromas of banana pudding, slightly sour cherries, sour apple, light cream, and fresh coconut. Delicate mouthfeel. Tasting notes of anise, dried figs, black olives, cooked green beans, and a bit of peppermint. This one really grows and changes in the glass. More air helps this develop. Great spirit.

Nose – Nail polish. Coconut water. Walnut.

Palate – This one is a grower not a show’er… meager appearance but then an explosive finish! Chalk. Banana. Dates. Clay minerality… dynamite flavors. Love this one.

47.5% abv, this is a single batch bottling.

Review #38: bubble gum, light cream, and lactic on the nose and beginning of the palate. It reminds me specifically of the flavor and smell of good milk. banana, coconut, sharpie, light smoke and delicate florals take over in the middle, then a bit of grass, fresh green herbs, and clay on the finish.

This one is really unique with the milk notes i get, especially on the nose. It doesn’t have a thick creaminess to it, but more like a fresh milk. This is a bit delicate in its flavors, but they meld together beautifully and make it stand out a lot to me from other mezcals. It is really great stuff that I could sip on any day.
