The Vago Ensamble with a blue label comes from Emigdio Jarquín Ramírez in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. While Vago has produced Ensamble en Barro from Tio Rey for many years, and a few ensambles from Aquilino have been released over the years, Emigdio’s ensambles began hitting the market in 2018. They are a blend of everything you’d love about any Emigdio single-varietal release, and they give him an opportunity to showcase some different distillations.

    Vago Ensamble – Emigdio (750ml)

    So good! Very funky on the nose like a sweet blue cheese. Mild taste, very little heat or smoke. Much less funk on the palate than the nose. Earthy, creamy, peppery with maybe a little bit of pine. Complex to the point where I almost ordered a second pour so I could spend more time trying to figure it out. Love the tobala in it. Definitely try it if you get the chance

    55% Tobala, 45% Madrecuixe – This is my personal favorite of Emigdio’s releases that I’ve tried. Very distinctive flavor profile that is quite similar to his other batches; but with a certain creamy sweetness which I imagine comes from the Tobala. Emigdio’s mezcals are tough to describe, but I tend to think earthy, vegetal, cucumber, bubblegum, and mineral flavors. 4.5 stars

    55% Tobala + 45% Madrecuixe. Tasty combo of my two favorite agaves.

    47% Cuixe, 35% Espadin, 18% Tepeztate from March 2018. Lot E-03-CET-18. Aromas of sweet apples, maraschino cherries, and red velvet chocolate cake. The palate is heavily perfumed, too much for my liking, but others might love this. Give it a try. It’s a bit grassy and vegetal with earthy notes mixing with salty water taffy. A bit of heat on the back of the palate.

    47% Cuixe + 35% Espadin + 18% Tepeztate Emigdio always my favorite. I’d liked the kick that the Tepeztate and Espadin give these Ensambles, which i think makes it a bit more green than sweet from the Cuixe.
