Nose

Light aromas of caramelized agave with a touch of fall spices.

Taste

Definitely on the tequila spectrum of mezcals with bits of that classic tequila caramelized agave flavor highlighted by a touch of cinnamon and freshly ground black pepper.

Method / Background Notes

Distilled by one of the few maestra mezcaleras, Doña Teresa Rubio Murillo, the Miel de Tierra joven is another in that in-between category of officially a mezcal but historically a tequila because it comes from the historical zone of tequila production and is made from Agave tequilana Weber. The production follows that history into contemporary tequila production, the agaves are roasted in an autoclave, crushed mechanically, fermented in stainless steel with Saccharomyces Cerevisiae, and distilled in a copper alembique.

Max co-founded Mezcalistas with Susan way back in 2012. Before that he was a journalist at Salon.com and The San Francisco Chronicle.
