El Mero Mero Espadin is made with agave Espadin in the town of San Dionisio Ocotopec, Oaxaca. Very little rainfall keeps agave growing low to the ground in this region. Just like grapes, this stresses the plants, forcing them to create more sugar, which can come through in the flavor. The agave used in this mezcal are tahona crushed, fermented in Encino Oak tubs, and double distilled in copper. The proofing of this spirit uses no water, only the heads and tails of the distillate. This mezcal has notes of herbal smoke, wood resin, earthy minerals and a hint of peppery spice. A typical batch of this Espadin is around 500-800 bottles total.

    this mezcal was one that i had to try more than once to appreciate.it gains complexity with time.the first wiff is not that distinct but really opens up after a minute or two.the smell is mix of licorice and espadin.there is a hint of licorice on the entry with up front agave sweetness.midway are notes of sea salt, buckwheat honey and slight citrus.the finish has good smoke and a medium linger.it seems more enjoyable and more complex each time i sample.this one is a sleeper and a very good bargain.i think the fact that no water is used in the proofing gives this spirit a beautiful quality.it seems hard to find this brand but worth seeking out.would love to try the tobala and tepextate.

    Lot 67. Brine, anise, fresh cut grass and citrus on the nose. Strong notes of pepper and licorice flavors. It’s a little hot, delivers a long and enjoyable finish.

    A spectacular mezcal that is so smooth and sippable, I can’t stop with it. It’s just delicious and the bottle is so cute. It’s one of my favorite mezcals of all time.
