Bosscal Mezcal Joven

Nov 8, 2019

Light, citrusy, and piney. A bit different but I enjoy it. It wouldn’t be a typical go-to for me because I usually like something that packs more of a punch. However, it still has a good amount of flavor for being a lighter mezcal. If you’re trying more than one mezcal in the same night you’ll want to drink this one early on. I could also see this being a good introductory mezcal to someone who might shy away from a stronger, smokier drink.

Puntagave Rustico Raicilla – Rhodacantha

Nov 3, 2019

I bought Puntagave’s Sotol first and it was decent but didn’t blow me away. I was somewhat hesitant to try the Raicilla since it’s a bit more expensive but Puntagave says it’s their “In house favorite” so I decided to give it a shot. I was NOT disappointed. I haven’t tried a lot of Raicillas that I’m crazy about but I really enjoy this one. It packs a ton of flavor. Fruity, creamy, and a very distinct but pleasant cheesy aftertaste. I definitely recommend giving this one a shot.

Rey Campero Espadin

Nov 3, 2019

This is one of the better espadins I’ve tried and a it’s a great mezcal for the price. Full of flavor but not much alcohol bite. It has some peppery and citrus flavors with a little bit of sweetness. I’ll definitely buy this one again.

Mayalen Guerrero

Nov 2, 2019

Fruity and floral with some caramel or butterscotch on the finish. I really enjoy this one. This is the only Mayalen I’ve been able to get my hands on but the 54% alcohol isn’t noticeably hot to me. This is definitely one of the best cupreata’s I’ve had for the price. I would definitely recommend trying it.

Derrumbes San Luis Potosi

Oct 6, 2019

I stumbled up this mezcal while searching through this website and I’m so glad that I did. The other reviews are spot on. This is super unique and an incredible value at less than $40 a bottle. It’s extremely approachable and floral. Almost minty in flavor with a vanilla finish that lingers. I’ll be buying this again for sure. My 3.5 star review is only a representation of taste. It’s easily 5/5 stars if you factor in value.

Vago Espadin – Joel Barriga

Oct 6, 2019

The bottle I have right now is by Joel Barriga in May of 2019. I absolutely love this espadin. It has a rich, dark, and fruity flavor to it that reminds me of a fruit-forward dark roast coffee. I have also had Aquilino’s espadin and although different, I’m a big fan of his as well. I’d like to get a bottle of Emigdio’s and Tio’s en barro espadin to try them all since they all seem to produce such great mezcals at an affordable price.

Edit: I was able to pick up a bottle of Emigdio’s espadin recently. I’m extremely impressed. Definitely a bit different. It has more of an herbal/vegetal taste than Joel Barriga’s. The mouthfeel is noticeable viscous as well. Tons of flavor. You definitely can’t get much better than this for the price if at all.

Vago Ensamble en Barro

Oct 5, 2019

I have had several of Tio’s ensambles and I enjoy all of them. The one I’m drinking at the moment is 42% Espadin, 27% Arroqueno, 20% Coyote, and 11% Mexicano. It definitely has that earthy clay taste to it but it’s not overpowering. It has some nice spice notes and a caramel finish that shines through. The price of these ensambles are extremely reasonable and always keep me coming back for more.
