About this destilado de agave
Rayo Seco Cenizo is produced by maestro vinatero Gilberto Roldan in Nombre de Dios, Durango. Wild-harvested maguey Cenizo might be the most common agave in Durango, but this ancestral agave spirit is anything but basic. Look for notes of Mexican hot chocolate, with peppery, sweet, and buttery notes hitting all at once.
Rayo Seco Destilados is a brand featuring some of the finest producers in Guerrero, Mexico and beyond. They represent over five generations and they provide an introduction to the traditions of Guerrero to consumers across the globe. As of 2021, the state of Guerrero was still relatively untouched by many importers due to the decades-long unrest throughout much of the state. This is beginning to change as brands like Rayo Seco are at the forefront of exporting craft spirits from the region. Rayo Seco is also working with producers in other regions of Mexico.

Drank this one in an Irish pub in Mexico City right before watching the Luchas in Arena Mexico.
I don’t have specific memories of the flavors, I just remember it being a little spicy and tropical, earthy and very easy sipping for +100 proof.
Loving those Durango Mezcales!
There is a weird funk to this mezcal but once it opens up it is pretty tasty. There is some vegetal sweetness like maple asparagus. Overall a quality spirit but I enjoy his agave-forward Lamparillo more than this. Batch 202110. Bottle 336/480.
Batch 202110. Bottle 336/480. Aromas of freshly ground pepper, jalapeno cream, and sweet peppermint. The palate is dry with notes of freshly dried herbs, Oaxacan hot chocolate (with water, not milk), jalapeno muenster cheese, and dry Spanish moss. Very soft and delicate.
