Del Maguey Mezcal
We were cautious about the cost, but once we got this baby home we were very pleased with the flavor, the smoothness, and the complexity. I loved how much the smoke comes through, but more importantly I loved the subtle hints of other indescribable flavors it presented. We had a party and everyone ended up sipping this mezcal and abandoning their wine. At one point someone used this in a margarita with mix, but we were able to safely escort them from the party unscathed.
Very nice Jabali. It‚Äôs on the softer side, but in a good way. Smells of wild flowers. tastes of grapefruit and black pepper.
My first JabaIi agave Mezcal. I found the nose to be quite potent, flowery perfume and citrus. I struggled to identify key flavours, maybe as it was among other drinks, however, Grassiness that reminded me of wormwood, roots and sweet leather, a little numbing. A light creamy finish with a long lasting spicy sherbet sourness that sticks to the tongue. I‚Äôll try more jabali to see how this compares and look to try this again with a re-edit.
Lot Jab-182. Incredibly smooth! Really bright on the nose. Strong citrus and acidity. Woody finish. Killer bottle!
Lot Jab-181. Beautiful and complex! Fresh jalape√±o, fresh green bell pepper, jasmine flower, pineapple, papaya, banana, plumeria flower, clove, allspice, sandlewood, teak wood. WOW!!!
lighter and greener than the other jabalis i‚Äôve tried. very nice, but i‚Äôm all about the rey campero jabali. that one negates the existence of the DM for me.
Did not meet my expectations, not sure if its the right term but it just seemed flat and lacking flavor.
Compact and concentrated flavors. Citrusy sweetness with a slight mineral bitterness.
A great release from Del Maguey. This jabali is lighter than others I‚Äôve tried. The initial flavors remind me of the Del Maguey Tepextate (perhaps the same mezcalero?). There are notes of black olive, melon, clove, and it finishes with a zesty wood spice. It‚Äôs thin on the palate and leaves a soft tingling sensation in your mouth. It doesn‚Äôt impress me as much as the El Jolgorio jabali but this is an impressive spirit nonetheless. Lot JAB-161
