Description
 

Montelobos Mezcal Joven, is made in Oaxaca, the heart of mezcal production, from 100% Highland ‘Espadin‘ Agave. Espadin is a different variety in the agave family than is used to make tequila, which uses the Blue Webber variety. This agave is prepared in the traditional way include fire pit roasting, crushing by mule drawn stone wheel, and then distilled in small wood fire copper pots

On the nose there is smoky note, roasted agave, roasted jalapeño, and oyster shells. While the smoke is strong, it’s not overwhelming as taste has a nice sweet roasted agave note which is quickly joined by the smoke from the nose. The smoke here is quite pleasant, in very much the same way that the peat smoke on an Islay Scotch Whisky is enjoyable. Also there on the entry is a nice spicy white pepper note which is accompanied by a noticeable amount of salinity. All this serves to create a balance which is maintained throughout the flavor experience.
