Lalocura San Martinero is made with a Karwinskii agave that is locally referred to as San Martinero. The agave is a larger, thicker sub-species of Karwinskii that can also be called Barril in other communities. A similar Karwinskii is also called Sanmartin in Ejutla, which is not terribly far from Santa Catarina Minas, where Lalocura is made. Maestro mezcalero Eduardo Angeles cooks his agave with Encino wood. He mashes the cooked agave by hand with wooden mallets, ferments the agave in open-air cypress vats for twelve days, and double distills this mezcal in small clay pots.

    Yeah, i dunno if I really get the love for this one. Not what i was hoping initially…. muddled flavors and an alcohol burn that is unpleasant. Need to revisit before I write anymore. The flavors/smell are great, but cant give this five stars. 4.25/5

    Wow! This is nice! Sweet and minty but not overstated. Lots of tropical fruit flavors that are hard for me to individually characterize. Faint clay notes in the background. So smooth and it goes down almost too easy. Be on the lookout for this new release in the US. Production 2017. ABV:47.1

    Whoa! Lots of clay and soy sauce on the initial taste. Somewhat viscous. Sugar syrup and blueberries. Green beans and eucalyptus. Delicious.

    The nose is full of peanut oil, cashews, and lavender. The palate is full roots, and wet leaves, and wet wood. This has big wet, dark flavors, like old logs that have been laying in the woods for years. It’s like a wet fall day. Amazing!

    Lot 13. Wow! Creamy and delicious!! Like stepping into a cool adobe house in the desert. Very earthy with notes of marzipan and ginger. I can’t wait to try all of these!

    It has now been well over a year since one of my trusted spirits merchants urged me to try Lalocura’s offerings. After overcoming my resistance to their aggressive pricing, there has been no turning back. Without exception, these mezcals are extraordinary. That said, choosing my favorite was easy. This San Martinero is truly amazing, from nose to finish. Rich, complex, and deeply satisfying. I actually purchased a second bottle, with no reservations about the expenditure. Magic in a bottle…

    BEAUTIFUL!this is the first of this brand i have tried.very expensive but i found out where my money went on the first sip.outstanding and it seems that a strong berry flavor is a common thread with this line after i read the reviews.it is soft-candy with strawberry and blueberry notes.no harshness.full flavor from start to finish and the taste lingers for a moment.it doesnt have the earth tones that are the usual for a karwinski.no smoke that i could detect.very fruity with some clay.this was also my first sanmartin.a true treat !
