About this mezcal

Xicaru Silver 102 is made with agave Espadin by mezcalero Fernando Santibanez in Santiago Matatlan. Xicaru Silver 102° differs from Xicaru Silver in the way it is distilled. Fernando selects a smaller cut from the heart of the distillate, giving Xicaru Silver 102 a bolder, more robust flavor. This also gives it a higher ABV of 51%.

Xicaru Mezcal

Xicaru is the Zapotec word for beautiful. This name reflects mezcalero Fernando Santibañez’s desire to share his artistic creations. Using his grandmother’s recipe, Fernando makes small batches of Xicaru Mezcal at his palenque in Matatlán, Oaxaca. Its natural smoky flavor is derived by cooking the agave in a conical stone oven on mesquite and ocote, woods native to Oaxaca. The cooked agave is tahona mashed and naturally fermented in an open pine vat. Following fermentation, it is double distilled in a copper alembic, filtered and precisely blended. Fernando is extremely proud to be able share his family’s mezcal with you.

Extra points to the brand for producing a higher-ABV mezcal.. it’s definitely better than their regular joven. Not much on the nose; on the palate there is soft vanilla with a chemical aftertaste. The flavor profile is clean like a blanco tequila. Might make a decent cocktail depending on the price. 2.5 stars
