Tres Papalote Cupreata Mezcal 40%, 750ML
Tres Papalote Mezcal is available in three different expressions, which differ in alcohol content. There is a release at 40% ABV, 46% ABV, and 50% ABV. All three releases are made in the state of Guerrero with wild agave Cupreata. This choice of agave sets the brand apart as most other mezcals available at this price point use farm-grown agave Espadin. 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.
