Tasting Notes

This hyper small batch offering from one of Mexico's leading regional mezcal bottlers is designed to support social causes while producing the most unique and rare expressions of agave in the world. The "Grandes Leyendas" line will feature one master over the age of 70 and their finest work. The proceeds of this rare and expensive bottling will go directly to the distiller and his family. Don Anastacio Juarez has been making mezcal in nothern Guerrero's Sierra Madre Occidental since he was twelve years old. He's now 72 and one of the finest practitioners of the art of distillation. He uses sustainably harvested Cupreata, fresh water from the local stream, small wooden vats for fermentation and a copper still with a wooden hat to create one of the most complex and understated mezcal in Mexico. Social justice never tasted so good. Only 789 bottles world wide.

    This is probably the most balanced selection from Mezcal de Leyenda; a superbly built bottling that drinks with such superior harmony that the price point actually seems a little low. There is more orange zest, lemon, and sweet agave here than the others, but these flavors are lovingly wrapped in woodsy smoke, warm spices, herbaceous earth, and a ribbon of comfortable acidity seamlessly threaded through the creamy texture.
