About this destilado de agave
Pal’alma Puebla – Papalometl is made with Agave potatorum by maestro mezcalero Asunción Matilde Vargas in the state of Puebla, Mexico. The agaves are cooked in a conical earthen oven and milled by hand with axes. Fermentation is done in a shallow stone well and then distilled only once using a hybrid ‘Filipino style’ clay & wood tree trunk still with a copper coil condenser.
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.

A delicious release from Erick. I do like this a bit more than the Espadilla Capon from Asunción Matilde Vargas. On the nose tennis balls, a touch of lactic funk, some sweetness. Tastes quite a bit more minerally/lactic than most puebla tobala pota’s I’ve had in the past. There is just a bit of sugary fruit that shines through. While tasty, it is expensive for the price point/taste.
