About this mezcal

Pierde Almas Tobaziche is made with the wild maguey Tobaziche, which is a member of the agave karwinskii family. This Mezcal is made by maestro mezcalero Agapito Henandez in San Baltazar. Strong tones of the fresh agave plant mix with a cedar, woody aroma that makes this a very charming Mezcal. The taste is sweet and long lasting, with a hint of wet clay.

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.

Lote: 12-TC

This is my one of my favorite Mezcals I have ever experienced in my lifetime!! That says a lot. Check out my IG: WhatACubeFella

Aroma: Fruit, Agave-centric, Woodsy (like Smoked Hinoki), Hickory
Palate: Like a Mezcal fireworks explosion, Wet Earthy Clay, Pepper, Slight Tannins (Drying Effect), Smoldering Smoky Agave (so it reminds me of Hickory BBQ
Experience: Lingering, Went from Sighing Effecf on Sides of Face to Warm Sensations on Sides of Neck & Throat, Perfecto

Short, clean and cream. Sweet cream and melon. Peppery.

Vibrantly crisp and sweet with nice smoky undertones.

Lot Unknown … Aromas of lemon, anise and a whiff of menthol; earthy notes followed by mellow fruit with a mild roast (smoke) on the palate. Wanted more on the finish. Enjoyed in a “wild & rare” flight, selection 2 of 4. 48% AbV

This was a couple of our groups favorite at the Piedre Almas tasting. I got menthol, anise, fennel seed, and wet leaves. Quite good!

Lot 12-TC. This must just have been an off batch, because it was WAY off. This just smells like pure diesel fuel exhaust on the nose and it tastes like diesel fumes on the palate. It’s almost as if someone was running a diesel generator next to the cooked agave for several days. This was borderline undrinkable.

Strangely different. Somewhat muted nose of wet dirt and pine. Taste is heavy on the mulch… or at least tastes like mulch smells. No burn on finish… extremely different/interesting mezcal

Notes of fruit and sugar on the nose. Delicious and approachable mezcal. Tastes a bit hot for 45.1% ABV but it doesn’t distract from the overall enjoyment. There are flavors of apple, honey, and lemon. Really delicious juice. Lot 04-TC

After resting for years in a store’s inventory, cedar notes toned down a bit, fruit & anise flavors moved foreword, smoke is still there, and its long complex & sweet finish lasts into next week. This is a gem from the past.
