La Luna Mezcal
This agave is cultivated and wild for this expression. We roast 90 hours under ground, straight into maceration and fermentation, ferment 120 hours, and proceed to double distill.
Aroma: Clean, floral nose with hints of citrus blossom and vanilla.
Flavor: citrus notes, smooth textures, and a deft touch of wood smoke throughout the lengthy aftertaste.
Cook time: 90 hours
Rest time post cooking: None
Fermentation time: 120
Mezcalero: Isidro Perez Escot
Haven‚Äôt had many Cupreatas or Michoacan-origin mezcales to compare to, but this punches well above its price point in terms of depth and uniqueness. Still, wouldn‚Äôt hesitate to use in a Paloma or fruity cocktail.
Bottle : 1679 Lot : 10 ABV : 49.61 Nose : Strawberries dominate with notes of cherries. Grappa quality. Taste : Some heat with a numbing effect but no burn. Very different from Oaxacan mezcals. Very fruity. Finish : soft and fleeting. Comments : must drink this out of a mezcal copita to open it up. Glencairin glass does not give it justice‚Ä¶
Big fruity and floral nose, getting red grape specifically, fantastic. To echo another, definitely give this an open-mouth or copita.
A rare cupreata from Michoac√°n that‚Äôs amazingly smooth and flavorful. Exactly what mezcal should be. Remember your geography: Michoac√°n is a state boarding the state of Jalisco where tequila is made. The crop makes the product and the cupreata agave from Michoac√°n are unlike anything in the world. This mezcal exemplifies what makes mezcal from Michoac√°n great. Five stars
A lovely agave cupreata mezcal from a really interesting new brand. At 49.5% there is a nice warmth here but zero bite. There are some notes of raisin, dark cherries, shortbread, and a touch of anise. There are some great mezcals coming out of Michoacan and this is one of them! Lot 7.
