Yuu Baal Jabali Artisanal Mezcal (750ml) (Elsewhere $180)

SKU #1531887

Yuu Baal has been critical in the development of American's appreciation of Mezcal. The 100% Mexican-owned company is a group of producers from 3 different villages known for exceptional Mezcal production. The Jabali Mezcal, a beautiful example of this wild variety, comes from an exceedingly rare agave that is also difficult to ferment and distill. Made in the traditional artisanal method, these ripe, wild agaves are roasted in underground ovens before being milled by hand with wooden mallets. This labor-intensive milling helps bring out the most intense flavors without compromising them by crushing the fibers too much. Wild fermentation in pine vats followed by a double distillation in clay pots ensures the most robust Jabali characteristics are preserved and transferred to your glass. This product will no longer be available in 750ml formats. Not only is this your last chance to grab a full-sized bottle, but it's an opportunity to grab them at a steep discount!

With this incredible, one-time pricing, Yuu Baal's Jabali went from the most expensive in the store to the least expensive. This exceedingly rare agave is notoriously difficult to distill, and many producers don't bother even if they have access to the plant. Those that persevere and manage to tame the foamy agave during fermentation and distillation are justly rewarded for their patience and determination. Hailing from the extremely well-suited growing region of Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz, this spirit is an example of Jabali perfection. The entry is sweet and smoky, like BBQ sauce. There is a beautiful tree fruit blossom complexity that is difficult to pinpoint. It's at once peachy, appley, floral, and generally quite complex. The sweetness of the perfectly caramelized BBQ sauce carries into the palate and explodes into a piquant array of roasted peppers, cracked black peppercorn, and wild honey that takes the edge off. There isn't a better deal in the store at the moment than this Jabali at a closeout price.
