On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.
The Ibérico expresses a citrus-forward nose of lime and grapefruit with a tropical aroma of banana. A viscous mouthfeel coats the palate with savory flavors, complemented by a slight floral note of hibiscus flower.
