Alipus San Luis uses agave Espadin that is grown in sandy soil at 4100 feet along the spreading sides of the canyon. The soils are sandy with lots of rocks, and the climate is hot, meaning lots of flavor. Don Baltazar ferments in 1500-liter pine vats. His Mezcals are rich, full-bodied, and fruity.  This is not Don Baltazar’s only Mezcal on the market, and they all carry his signature flavors.

    There are notes of rubber/bubblegum on the nose. There is some nice fruitiness to this mezcal.. grape, mango, mint. The finish is strong and lingers a bit. Another very enjoyable mezcal from Alipus. Lot SLR004/15

    The smoothest Joven I’ve tried yet. It’s got some heat. No burnt rubber taste. It’s amazing as mezcal goes. I mixed it in a cocktail from Ilegal’s website with Tonic, cucumber and grapefruit peel. It was okay but the traditional way is really good. Sipping from a copita is the best to me. Highly recommend the San Luis from Alipus. SLR004/19 Bot 438/1180

    One of my favorites by Alipus. Lot SLR008/15. It’s sweet up front with some nice heat to finish.

    My first bottle. Gin, pine, canteloupe, sticks on the tongue. Stronger smoke, carmelized roasted agave.

    My favorite Alipus mezcal. It’s very smoky, very sweet, and fairly complex. It’s just a hair unbalanced otherwise this would be a 5 star spirit. But hey I just bought another bottle so they must be doing something right ;).

    Lot SLR004/15. Salty, dry scents mix with fruit on the nose. The taste is a little hot with fruity notes of cantaloupe, melon, and honey. It’s slightly mineral and the heat carries through to the finish. Overall, this is a great Espadin. I recommend trying this one with some other Alipus to get a good feel for how terroir impacts the agave used in Mezcal.

    Bottle 015/1380, Lot SLR004/17, 47.5% ABV. Smell reminds me of first rain drops on dry pavement. Tastes are subtle and well integrated. Mint, lemon, fresh green jalapeño, a bit of salt, a hint of smoke, nice clean 95-proof burn and a sweet finish. Solidly well-made and dangerously quaffable.

    Alipus Joven Mezcal San Luis / 96 proof Tahona milled, copper still. Surprisingly light despite its high proof, agave and smoke are a bit moderated compared to other Alipus mezcals. Also detect a touch of fruit / citrus. A smooth, delicious sipping mezcal. (Lot SLR006/16, bottle 1403/1590)
