Maguey Melate "Pulquero" (Felix Hernandez Ruiz) Santiago Matatlan Oaxaca Uncertified Mezcal (375ml)

SKU #1554722

The rare pulquero varietal is typically used for the traditional production of the local Pulque beverage, a slightly sour, sweet agave nectar beer. These plants grow very large and take 14 to 16 years to mature. The exceptional distillery Senor Felix Hernandez Ruiz produced this one in July of 2021. It was roasted for 4 days underground before 1 day of dry fermentation and 3 days in a wooden vat with well water. Double-distilled on copper pots, this fresh pulquero exemplifies the rustic green character of this rarely used agave.

This is a pretty rare expression from a great producer in the most important mezcal producing village in Oaxaca. This plant isn't typically used for mezcal production, but when they are it can offer some very unique flavors. The nose is a splendid mixture of briny green earth and zesty lemon. There's almost an earthy olive-y note here and tons of freshly tilled soil. Around that floral and fragrant herbal character On the palate, a very pointed and appealing oak smoke character coupled with a juicy salinity which plays well with the green earthy note and the continuing citrus tones which balance the sweet roasted agave flavors perfectly. It is way to easy to drink this stuff, despite it not being super straight forward, it's extremely delicious!
