Fresh fruity notes of melon and berries combine with rich creamy cashew. Aromas are strong yet dainty.
Bright and zesty, the flavors start out with a hint of smoked brown sugar, blood orange zest, and red cayenne spice. Aromatic raspberry and blackberry notes are earthy, sweet, and tart, pairing with the slightly viscous texture to add depth and warmth. A mineral finish is clean and fresh.
Made from Bicuishe between 8-12 years old, this mezcal is crafted in the traditional artisanal method. Cooking takes place in an in-ground oven with river rocks before being milked with a stone tahona, followed by fermentation in wooden tanks, and finally double distillation in copper pot stills.
