Pierde Almas Mezcal

Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with painstaking care by the family patriarch in each successive generation. Their labels are hand-printed on 100% acid-free, handmade paper derived from fibers that are indigenous to the region and have been in use since pre-Columbian times. With their Wild Agave Reforestation Program, they are actively engaged in the re-forestation of wild species of Agave in those areas where their populations have been depleted. Pierde Almas begins each rainy season by inviting bartenders, chefs, restauranteurs, and journalists to join them for their annual wild Tobalá planting. Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV of each lot may vary slightly.

In May 2018, British multinational alcoholic beverages company Diageo purchased Pierde Almas Mezcal.

I like this a lot, but the heavy handed lack of balance in the finish is a little unbalanced. That said, I’m a big fan otherwise and really have enjoyed working through this bottle.

Sweet up front taste. Slight bitterness in the smoke. Good, balanced and lasting burn that is very pleasant. Very smooth for a 49%. Enjoyable. Good.

Lot 05-SLR – Lots of green vegetal notes on the nose. Quite smooth for 50% ABV. Not incredibly complex but also no flaws. Vanilla and smoke forward with some flavors of burnt caramel. Finish is on the dry side with a touch of firewood. I like this one but it is quite down the middle – still, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Lot 20-SJR – Smoke with some sour cherry rubber. 49% ABV with personality but no sass. Dry tart finish. Definitely prefer the SLR batch. They also have yet another batch from San Baltazar. This brand has zero transparency so buy at your own risk!
