About this mezcal

Rey Campero Mexicano + Cuishe + Tepeztate + Coyote was made with 25% Agave rhodacantha, 25% Agave karwinskii, 25% Agave marmorata, and 25% Agave sp. Maestro Mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada produced this batch DS002-4M in February of 2019 at his palenque in Candelaria Yegole, Oaxaca.

Rey Campero Mezcal

Rey Campero represents the culture, tradition and art of Candelaria Yegolé, a small town in the Southern Highlands of Oaxaca, with a fertile ground on its slopes and canyons. It represents a people dedicated to the production of artisanal Mezcal, so one of its principles is to help producers of maguey, by creating job opportunities, but especially in finding markets for the best Mezcal. Rey Campero, means "King of the Countryside" and it was founded by the maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada. Romulo learned how to make mezcal from his father, and he worked in the palenque until age 20. He lived and worked for several years in North Carolina while in his 20s before returning to Oaxaca in 2003. Each lot may vary slightly, so check your bottle for specific details about ABV.

I’ve had a 2oz dram half empty for a few months. Enjoying it much more now than my first impression. It’s got some heat but isn’t overwhelming. Lots of candy notes as others have noted. I get a bit of Nerds and Sour Patch Kids. Agaves are all equal parts with the chocolate Mexicano and dry wood Karwinskii standing out a bit more than the others. It’s pretty good – really liking the more recent ensambles from Romulo.

Very hot! Nail polish remover and rubbing alcohol hot. Banana, big league chew, and red vines. It’s possible it would have mellowed out over time but this was only a one ounce sample.

Aromas of orange juice, pineapple, raisins, and slight apple cider vinegar. The palate has notes of sweet tarts, pixie sticks, yogurt covered raisins, and orange creamcicles. This is really a fantastic spirit. The field blends from Romulo do not disappoint and this one is special.
