Staff Review: El Buho is a hand-crafted Mezcal made in the heart of Oaxaca. Hand selected Espadin agave plants are harvested and then slowly roasted in a stone pit fire between Oaxacan earth and local mesquite for a week. These pina pieces are then crushed by a burro on a tohona stone mill. Well water is added to the resulting aguamiel crush and this smoked brew ferments for a few days. The mash is then double distilled in a fifth generation alembic still, drip by drip. Fresh aromas of ripe pear and hints of pineapples grilled over a campfire. Soft, full bodied texture and lasting finish on the palate. This mezcal is 100% ABV Espadin that is slow roasted in a pit for maximum flavor development and double distilled in a fifth generation alembic still.

Tasting Notes: El Buho has notes of vanilla, salt, citrus, caramel, dark chocolate, and ancho chile. ItÌ_ÌÇ_Ì_åÇÌ_åöÌ_ÌÇ_Ì_åÇåÎåâs great to sip neat on any occasion or to be used as a base for cocktails.
