About this destilado de agave

Pal’alma Guerrero – Cupreata Capon is made with Agave cupreata that took between 8-15 years to reach maturity. Once the reproductive stalk (“quiote”) began to grow, it was cut (“capón”) to redirect and concentrate sugars in the plant’s heart for a further 3 years. The resulting spirit is rich and expressive.


Pal'alma (or Mezcalito Pal'alma) is curated by Erick Rodriguez. Erick also bottles under the brand Almamezcalera. Known by many as the Indiana Jones of Mezcal, Erick Rodriguez works with agave spirits producers from the 20+ states of Mexico. Anywhere he finds agave fields and a freshwater stream, there’s a good chance that someone is making mezcal nearby. He has a private tasting room in Mexico City, which we visited in 2017, and wrote about in our post Almamezcalera & Mezcalito Pal’alma.

Lot 008. Bottle 75/76. Wow wow wowwww this is something special! On the nose, I get Calvados, caramel apple, chocolate-covered raisins, brown sugar, Nilla Wafers, and brandied cherries. The palate explodes with chocolate milk before more nuanced flavors reveal themselves: Ovaltine, sticky toffee pudding, spent coffee grinds, Bartlett pear, sweet potato casserole, freshly baked shortbread…

Every sip demands my attention, and I absolutely love it.

Agree with Jonny on the toffee/caramel. Some granny smith too. Really nice minerality on the finish. Almost like it was mixed with a flat Rambler. Love this

Lot 008. Bottle 06/76. The recent influx of Guerrero mezcal has me hooked. This yet another STELLAR mezcal from Guerrero. Aromas of crisp, fresh green apples, plums, and yellow Starbursts. The palate coats the mouth with notes of toffee, caramel, dates, sweet potatoes, hot chocolate, and freshly brewed coffee. The finish is long and sweet with extended caramel notes. Solid highs, mids, and lows throughout on this one.
