Macurichos Ancestral Arroqueño

Jun 20, 2024

distillation date December 2019. Lote: AQ-002. bottle 169/240. 52.13%abv
first impressions on neck pour after a handful of other mezcal, I found it surprisingly hot and medicinal, almost unfamiliar to arroqueño i was expecting. On a new day with little breathing room for the bottle, however, it’s settled into its own and reveals a delightful arroqueño! I now see those really heightened notes I got day 1 have stretched their legs. I get a light leathery clove spice note on the nose, a hint of sawdust. on the palate, while its still noticeably topping 50% small sips burst with flavor. someone said banana and ya I get some of that along with the light woody, dried fruit, molasses/ brown sugar.

welcoming aroma, subtle but refreshing. tasty. overall solid option. sry no batch info. (my guess is a bottling from 2021ish)
green, vegetal, not quite peppery and the brightness was a little dull, but again it was plenty drinkable and I’m sure many people would appreciate this as it was certainly not off putting like some other rough ones.

I am loving this! I need to give it a proper review with notes. was surprised to see that I hadn’t yet. This teleports me, sweet agave, hay, the perfect roast notes, I’ll be back to update when I can. Meanwhile, give it a try!

Bottle 695. July 2022. I get sharpies, rubber, full mouthfeel, a bit hot (I dont mind that but its not that pleasant here). Im not a fan of this. Have tried 2 different bottles (gave 1 as a gift to a friend..) If anyone wants mine lemme know.

green, medicinal, piney, hot and thin not in a terrible way but not really in a pleasing way either. It was ok but I’d be looking for other options first

Tasted at a local bar. Didn’t get the batch info but did look at it up close to check the family name.

I got.. crème brûlée, brown sugar, piloncillo, a herbal minty finish. Not hot at all. got some dusty sweet sotol cucharilla vibes as I sat with this one.

This was stellar. I have lot 11 and 21. Going from memory, don’t know which lot per say. First time I had this both my wife and I looked up a each other and said wow. I havent been doing notes but rather pausing to sit in the moment with the mezcal and people I’m surrounded by, soak up that side a bit. 10 of 10 I would get it again for sure!

Yup, sample size tasting but found this pretty wild profile. enjoyed it and would taste again / pick up a bottle. (I believe its approachable in price relative to others)
