Produced with the agave Barril, this Bozal Barril mezcal is classified as ancestral and something truly to behold. The thick-foliaged wild agave is often used to divide property in Oaxaca, and makes a a superb rounded mezcal. It is made in Santa Catarina Minas which is famous for distilling in small clay pots.
The aromatics are herbaceous and spicy with notes of forest grass and anise flower. A slight sweetness is evident on the unctuous palate with flavors of agave, honey and river stone, finishing with a floral aftertaste. Let this one open up in the glass for a few minutes. The difference is well worth it.
