Tasting Notes

San Luis Del Rio is in the district of Tlacolula, located in the east of the Valles Centrales region. A small village making big mezcal, it is tucked away in the mountains next to the Rio Hormiga Colorada. Espadín is grown on slopes so steep and high that harvested piñas have to be rolled down the mountainside before being taken back to the plaenque through the river bed below. The intense heat of the sun on the high elevation mountaintops (over 7,000 feet up) results in early-ripening agave with very concentrated sugars. Roasting and fermenting the agave at low elevation, however, brings bold and funky flavors of mesquite, bright citrus fruit, spicy black pepper, and a round, creamy palate, with most perceived smokiness of the Nuestra lineup.
