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.

Edition 04. Quite the shift from the ensamble I had right before this, but really liked the kick in this one. Pretty smooth, but with a good bite that seems to be missing in some of the cheaper mezcal I’ve been trying.

2014: Edition 2 – Minerals, grass, and a little smoke on the palate with some sweetness. Now that this has been sitting on my shelf for awhile, the heat has mellowed significantly and it is more enjoyable. Though it hasn’t been one that regularly begs my attention, for $50 it’s a solid sipper with an interesting flavor profile.

Going by memory on this one, so no detailed notes, but the overall impression stuck with me. I tried this in a Nuestra Soledad flight and this particular bottle was dominated by alcohol, so it was my least favorite of the 3. It was just opened, but so were the other 2, which didn’t have the overpowering alcohol. It wasn’t unbearable, but definitely distracting. Edition 1, 2014.

Big fan of this mezcal. It’s fruity and peppery and very smooth. Drank a bottle during the Patriots Super Bowl comeback. It reminds me of Julian Edelman’s miracle catch.

Have yet to try the entire Nuestra Solidad lineup, but excited to try the rest because the Santa Maria Zoquitlan is delicious. This is a very high-quality (and well-priced) cultivated Espadin mezcal from the El Jolgorio family palenque. Very smooth for 45.7% ABV. Its got some smoky floral notes on the nose. The taste has some nice minerality and a bit of caramel. It finishes a bit on the sharp but quickly smoothes out and the sweetness lingers. The bottle I’m enjoying is a 2014 Edition 01 Lot IPE003-4.

Lot IPE003-4. This mezcal is slightly fruity on the nose, but still carries the same heat found in the other Nuestra Soledad mezcals. The scent has subtle plum notes that are slightly perfumed, but not in a way that overpowers the mezcal. The taste is slightly peppery with notes of vanilla and leather. Overall, this is a good sipper. The bottle I tried was Edition 1 from 2014.
