Siete Misterios Mezcal
Bruxo No. 3 uses Barril agave, which is a type of wild agave that grows in the hills of San Agustin Amatengo. The mezcalero, Tio Conejo (Uncle Rabbit) and his son Candido Reyes, use donkeys to transport the agave back to their distillery where the agave is fermented and distilled. The flavors are unbelievably savory and mineral at the same time. There are notes of flint that mesh with peppery herbs and dried leaves on a creamy and supple palate.
smells of agave and is nice and light. flavor is quite complex, a slight copperiness upfront but with a woody and sweet finish. a slight harshness, but overall a very interesting flavor profile that is very enjoyable.
Really nice balance of stone fruits, toffee like sweetness with some salty minerals all combined with that mushy fresh Agave! A sweet nose and classic agbe flavour. Decent.
On the nose there is fruit and pepper. Like the Bruxo Tobala I‚Äôve tried, the flavors here are so clean and defined. Notes of honey, vanilla, leather, pepper. On the palate there is oily sweetness. It finishes with lingering burnt peat. I‚Äôve only had a few straight Barrils and enjoyed them immensely so I might be partial, but nonetheless this is an enjoyable mezcal and quite affordable at that.
Nose is wet grass and clay. Mouthfeel is soft and peppery. Palate and finish are slightly funky, in the best way.
Lot NO243C from Candido Reyes. This is a really nice Barril. There‚Äôs a salty minerality in the nose that doesn‚Äôt carry over the taste at all. The flavor is perfectly balanced, with notes of rich agave, almond, and black pepper. It has an elegant texture that is almost creamy through the finish. There aren‚Äôt too many straight Barril mezcals that I‚Äôve seen, and so far none of them that I‚Äôve tried have been as good as this one.
get this one if you can!this is one of the most pleasant mezcals i have consumed!excellent spice.sweet banana/fig and so very clean.the finish is quick and in a wisp.at least in my top 5.delicious!!
First time drinking Barril and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
