Gusto Histórico Astor Batch Espadin Penca Corta Mezcal - 2019

Item # 48236 750mL

One of the first batches ever to reach the US from Ignacio Juarez, one of the most sought after young generation of mezcaleros taking over from his legendary father Saturnino. Due to the acclaim of their mezcals, bottlings are very rarely exported which is even more reason why we had to jump on this opportunity to select our own exclusive batch. Made from a rare sub-varietal of Espadin, the 'Penca Corta" denotes the smaller plants that they yield and with they, a higher concentration and intensity of flavor than is typical. The total yield for the entire batch was only 50 liters.

Staff Pick Notes

Private select batches are some of the most fun experiences in agave spirits with how interesting some of these smaller productions can be, this Espadin Penca Corta from Ignacio Juarez being a great example of that. A subspecies of Agave Angustifolia, Juarez crafted a masterful batch here that features notes such as cocoa powder, peanut brittle, root beer, tons of crisp quality fruit, and soft integrated earthy character that really is well composed despite the higher proof would lead one to believe. This exclusive batch to Astor Wines reflects some of the most pure and honest expressions of agave out there while showcasing complexity, depth, and intrigue with how rare of an agave this Penca Corta is, and it's a small batch so grabbing a bottle is highly advised.
