About this mezcal

Nuestra Soledad La Compania is made in a palenque that is rests at an elevation of about 5,000 feet.  The agave are grown on a steep slope, which helps control natural drainage and irrigation.  This Mezcal has notes of high-toned fruit and green pepper.  It is bright and refined.

Nuestra Soledad Mezcal

Traditionally, mezcals from different villages have their own distinctive flavors and aromas, which reflect the differences between distilleries, the soil, the local water sources, the wood used, and of course, the nuances created by the hand of the Maestro Mezcalero.  Mezcal Nuestra Soledad is a single village Mezcal that showcases the differences between the villages of Santiago Matatlán, La Compañía Ejutla, San Luis del Rio, and San Baltazar Guelavila. Mezcal Nuestra Soledad (a name which pays homage to Our Lady the Virgin of Solitude, the patron saint of the city of Oaxaca) is born from an ancient tradition and hand-crafted to conserve and retain the centuries-old methods of cultivating and producing this Elixir of the Gods. Each different expression is made from 100% agave Espadín, by the producers of El Jolgorio mezcals, in Oaxaca, Mexico. Check the batch on your bottle, as the ABV may vary slightly.

Minerals, fruit jam and smokiness on the nose. Sweet on the mouth. Retro peppery with hints of smoke

Mesquite BBQ and sweet cooked agave. There wasn’t anything extremely memorable about this one as it was a very straight forward Espadin. Nevertheless, it was certainly enjoyable. The tasty mesquite notes combined with the caramelized agave made me think of a delicious pulled pork or carnitas. 2017 Edition 31.

Edition 6 from 2014
Heavier hitter from the other espadins I was trying, but tbh I couldn’t stop thinning about the El Jolgorio Madrecuixe I had right before this.

Edition 16 from 2016, Lot GGCES180816NS
Nose of wet rock, minerals, mango, pear and black pepper.
Pleasant minerality on the palate, like a toned down Lachigui. Slightly viscous. Smoke is very soft and subtle. Stone fruit. Medium-length finish.
Great expression for the price you’re going to pay for it.

The Nuestra Soledad collection is some of the best mezcal in its price range; most bottles are around $50 USD or less. Unfortunately the Ejutla is the sour apple of the bunch. Maybe I’ve just tried a bad batch, but for me this mezcal is has a lot of rubbery and artificial notes. There are flavors of metal, ash, and what I imagine burst plastic to taste like. It’s still much better than industrial mezcals, but that’s not saying much. All of the other Nuestra Soledad mezcals are amazing, especially the Lachigui. This Ejutla was edition 8 from 2015, lot GRHES031215NS.
