El Buho Mezcal
PULQUERO LOT 1 Octavio Jiménez Monterroza This agave matures at 15 to 20 years of age. It is an immense agave with large, floppy leaves that have measured over 14 feet in length and can weigh over 4,000 lbs! It is also the same plant that is used to produce 'pulque,' an ancient agave drink used by Mesoamerican cultures dating back as far as 200 B.C.
The chalky nose blends nicely with a dry lactose mixed with green fruit on the front, with minerals and sea salt on the mid-palate before moving to a dry, citric finish.
