About this destilado de agave

Rezpiral Tequilana is made by famed mezcalera Reina (Reyna) Sanchez in San Luis Amatlan, Oaxaca. She makes her mezcal with agave that were cooked in a pit oven, mashed by hand with mallets, and double distilled in a copper still. This particular mezcal is somewhat unique in that agave Blue Weber, which this is made from, is not very abundant in this region.

2019, series #4, second release: six beautifully complex artisanal small batch agave spirits: A 77 liter batch of Mexicano & Tepextate ensamble crafted by Berta Vasquez, 150 liter batch of espadin crafted by Abel Martinez, a batch of Tequilana crafted by Reina Sanchez, a triple distilled Jabali created by Leo, a batch of Tobala with Frutas crafted by Aureliano Hernandez, and a batch of Tobaziche created by SImeon & Apolonio Ramirez.

Rezpiral

Rezpiral brings selections of high-quality traditional small-batch (non-certified) Mezcals into a handful of places in the USA. At the core of the project is the embrace of an ethos that aims to respect and support the multi-generational knowledge, independence, flavors, lands, and ways of each mezcalero family.

Rezpiral’s small scale allows for the advocacy of diversity on different levels, from supporting the autonomy of producers & their continued production of artisanal mezcals to the preservation of local land control. Rezpiral actively supports master artisan’s proactive planting and management of agave; recollecting and incubating seeds, transplanting and farming diverse species of endemic agave in sustainable ways.

Nose: outstanding! Peanut butter, the creamy melon of a Melona bar, pineapple, lavender, very subtle pine tar, freshly baked pan de muerto con nata (especially that nata scent).
Palate: more pine tar and sweet herbs, hints of menthol and spearmint
Mouthfeel: soft and brief
Overall: really good stuff, but I wish the palate matched the killer nose on this!

**Update: a week after opening, this bottle has really opened up! That beautiful nose is now finally making it onto the palate along with increasing tropical fruits. Quickly becoming my go to nightcap thanks to it’s sweeter, fruity profile.

WOW! That nose! This thing smells incredible. Tons of big fruity aromas: pineapple, pink lemonade, Bubble Tape bubblegum (original flavor), sweet raspberry jam, and tangerines. The palate is less bodacious, but still really nice. Sweet flavors of grilled pineapple, orange creamsicle, and a bit of tree fruit like peaches or apricots. Really really enjoyable mezcal.

Series 4, 200 liters.

5 star nose—up there for me with Tosba Dua Warash, maguey melate’s barril, and Lalocura Tobala off the top of my head. Fruit bomb: pineapple, all types of melon, brine, and little bit of slate and chalk for good measure. Airy, fruity palate. Hot finish. Never been a big fan of tequila, oddly, and was worried this might be a dud given the agave. But I should have know in Reina’s hands, this was going to crush it. And it did.
