Mezcal Fidencio, Single Cask Nation
Single Cask Nation is the only independent bottler of Scotch Whisky based here in the US. Owned and operated by Joshua Hatton and Jason Johnstone-Yellin, the aim is to uncover the finest and rarest single casks and then bottle them at full cask strength. Though the focus is on Scotch whiskies, Single Cask Nation also bottles wonderful bourbons, rye whiskies, Indian whiskies, and even cask-aged Mezcals from some of the most famous, well-known, and respected producers in the world.

Located in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Fabrica de Amigo del Mezcal is a 5th generation palenque helmed by Maestro Mezcalero Enrique Jiménez and is known for producing the respected mezcal brand of Fidencio. The distillery employs 6, 200-liter copper pot stills that are directly fired and encased in brick, leading to a rich, earthy quality of distillate. This añejo bottling of Espadín was distilled in April 2009 and spent 5 years resting in a first fill bourbon barrel before being transferred to glass in 2014. It was bottled at cask strength in October 2018 at 50.9% ABV and is one of 780 bottles. Notes of fresh, exotic fruit and roasted agave meat dance lightly with diesel smoke and fresh tar on the mid-palate, finally relenting to a whisper-finish of honeyed baklava.
