Tasting Notes

Wow, perhaps the most impressive and unexpected in the current series of Rezpiral mezcals, this stunner from Reina Sanchez utilizes the Blue Weber Agave and brings Tequila all the way back to its roots in this breathtaking mezcal. The flavors are pungent and heady with a mix of pine sap, dried desert flowers, sweet herbs, pickled vegetables and hints of lavender.

Staff Pick Notes

If you aren't immediately familiar, yes, Agave Tequilana is the same "blue agave" that normally goes into Tequila. And yes, it's unusual to see it made into mezcal. I have to say, this might be the most exciting spirit I've tried from tequilana and I hope we see it more often. The aromas of this spirit fill the room as soon as you pop the cork. White peaches, under-ripe banana come first, then green layers of sour sop and freshly turned grass sod. The palate explodes with complexity, bringing in sage, hops, angelica, wet clay. This is NOT a bottle for someone looking for big smoke, instead showcasing unique fruit and florals possible with agave. All of Reina Sanchez' mezcals are mashed by hand with mallets, and she does most of the labor herself. She has a saying: “Blessed liquor, sacred elixir, what are you doing outside me? Get in!”
