About this mezcal

Tres Papalote Wild Cupreata Mezcal was previously available in three different expressions, which differed in alcohol content: 40% ABV, 46% ABV, and 50% ABV. Going forward the brand will be releasing this mezcal at 46% ABV. The choice of agave sets the brand apart as most other mezcals available at this price point use farm-grown agave Espadin (Tres Papalote also has an agave Espadin mezcal). The Cupreata provides a much different experience. Tres Papalote is sweet and savory with hints of medium smoke and a bit of spice. It’s great in cocktails and also for sipping neat.

This is hands down the best mezcal I’ve sipped… The notes are splendid on the palate, with & hint of citrus & spice… 💯✨

46% version. This has strong scents of tropical fruit, sweet agave, and flower pollen. The taste is a bit spicy with notes of jalapeno, black pepper, and winter squash. I liked this a lot and it’s a great deal at the price.

my opinion is biased because i love cupreata but here it goes.i have had the 40% and 46%.they are both excellent.the 40% had a little more caramel but i favor the 46% slightly.the entry is kitchen clean with agave fruit but is fleeting before flavors of pine and mint take over mid-way.finish is also quick with copper and pepper.very full flavor.i have had cupreatas that were watery but this one is not.light but very good.like a feather weight with knockout power.the nose and taste is bright.excellent spirit and value!
