Leyenda Durango is made by mezcalero Ventura Gallegos, whose family has been producing mezcal for many generations.  This mezcal is part of a co-op of mezcal producers, in a town called Nombre de Dios. This mezcal has floral aromas that mix with leather and wet clay.  The flavor is buttery with notes of coriander and fruit. This is a display of the agave’s terroir, which includes almost desert like conditions where the agave grows among lava rocks.

    Somewhat buttery with notes of sour apples and vinegar on the nose. The mezcal is light and easy to drink. It doesn’t linger too long. Its buttery taste is signature for this region and is enjoyable. There’s a subtle saltiness that I also enjoy in this mezcal.

    Quite aromatic and floral. Black berry, banana, black pepper, molten leafs and dried meat. White chocolate and violets on the palate. Quite complex even though it’s not my personal favourite.

    Lot SFDR1702L2616. Jeez! Longest Lot number ever! Roasted chapulines, pound cake, cinnamon, peppermint candy, anise, banana bread, and rosewater. I dig it.

    Im a fan of Cenizo, I like the often fruit forward and sweeter notes that it gives to a mezcal. I think that this mescal is a great showcase of those flavours and I quite enjoyed it. The nose and a salty touch reminiscent of the sea, which is fun coming from a landlocked region, met with fruity flora. The palate was smooth with a light coriander pepper (Or is that the Taco El Pastor?), a warming peatiness, wrapped in a silky mouthfeel that really covers the tongue. It finishes much sweeter with…

    I find this Mezcal to be an interesting experience everytime. I always get this excitement when the first floral notes hit my tongue. Then after only a few seconds you get into the earthiness and rustic territory which doesn’t last at all to end on a leathery and animal kind of feeling. Completely unique, I’d give it 3 stars for the taste only. But the fact that this calls for trying it again and again and that unique feeling of tasting something special makes me give it a 4.…
