One of our absolute favorites from Chacolo, batches of the rare Azul Telcruz come along only once every year or two. Their slightly elongated piña is dense with sugar and is harvested after 10 years maturation and 3 years capón in the field. The resulting mezcal is full of sweet, potent herbs and a dark, resinous finish full of hemp and pine—an intoxicating and curious profile which draws you back in first by curiosity, and later by sheer deliciousness. Get it while you can!
