Tasting Notes

Double distillation in traditional clay pot stills from an estate that spans across 4 generations is not something you hear every day when talking about spirits. Adding to the rareness of this bottling, is the fact that it is a blend of 4 different agave species, both wild and cultivated, with only a very small amount produced. The spirit beguiles you and makes you wonder how an un-aged spirit can be inherent of so much complexity and balance. Truly one of the most authentic and incredible spirits we have come across.

Staff Pick Notes

Mezcal is still an evolving category for me. And the Real Minero Mezcal was quite a revelation. I had the pleasure of tasting this spirit after it was open for a while. Given the exposure to oxygen, much of the requisite smoke had blown off, allowing the agave's natural, layered complexity to shine. Wave after wave of cooked tropical fruit, savory spice, and and explosive minerality were on display. It sparks consideration of the pros and cons of decanting spirits, but I digress. This bottling of four agaves is the sort of field blend that comes closest to the original mezcals \made before terms like "craft" and "single village" became commonplace. Get one now! Due to agave shortages, Real Minero will soon be changing this bottling to a two-variety style. Nothing lasts forever.
