About this mezcal

Siembra Metl Don Mateo Cenizo has flavor that is strongly influenced by the sap from Pine and Oyamel that grows near the agave. While Cupreata is more herbal, Cenizo/Sahuayensis has a spiced, floral bouquet. Strong nut varieties come through on the nose and palate; principally almonds. The texture coats the mouth with burst of fruits, like apples, and soft vanilla notes. Pine remains central, linking to the terroir of Pino Bonito and the tradition of distillation in the Vieyra family.

Siembra Metl Mezcal

Siembra Metl Don Mateo is mostly produced by Emilio Vieyra in Pino Bonito, Michoacán. Emilio’s distilling practices go back 5 generations. The Vieyra family cultivates their agaves and produces their spirit between the Rio Balsas basin and the Eje Neo-volcanico de la Sierra Madre del Sur. The fields are at an average of 7,500 ft and the Vinata where the spirit is roasted, macerated, fermented, and distilled sits at 7,000 ft. Check your bottle for details as they tend to vary slightly from batch to batch. The Siembra Metl brand also features some rare special edition releases from other producers, and they bottle tequila under the renowned Siembra Azul and Siembra Valles labels.

Great on the palate but the lifeless nose brings it down. Nose is muted, gentle but uninteresting, subtle agave and pepper. Palate is much more complex with sweet agave and sweet pepper without being cloying. Mouthfeel is rich and supple. Finish is short but pleasantly sweet and vegetal. 82/100

Boozy and floral on the nose. Notes of vanilla, menthol, peach, and slight pine. Sharp finish that doesn’t linger. Tasty juice and good value. December 2014 Lot 11.

Batch from December 2014. Lot 011. The aroma is sweet and almost fruity, but not much of that fruit continues through to the taste. Most of the taste is of pine and sap with notes of pepper and minerals. The feel is not too heavy, and the finish is hot and piney. Overall, this is a very unique mezcal. I like the agave Cenizo, and this mezcal really picks up the pine flavors. Delicious!
