El Jolgorio Mexicano smells of roasted agave and maple. It is made maguey Mexicano (also known as Dobadaan in other communities), which grows to be quite large. This Mezcal is straightforward and right down the middle with hints of light smoke, citrus, and peppers.
El Jolgorio is a range of artisanal mezcal from Oaxaca, made from a wide variety of rare, unique agave species. In Mexico, there are around fifty different species of agave used for mezcal production, each yielding a mezcal with its own distinct character. In 2010, the Cortés family began building a collective of top mezcal distillers from around Oaxaca, with the goal of sharing the true culture and spirit of mezcal with the world.
In all, El Jolgorio represents sixteen different families, working in ten different regions of Oaxaca, Mexico, each with its own special story. Every bottle is hand-marked with the specific details of each batch, to truly connect the drinker with the family behind the expression.
AROMA: Wet ferns in a humid forest, pine resin, jalapeno, mint.
TASTE: Mouth feel is soft. Nice initial ancho pepper heat on the tongue that gives way to a very mineral/slate flavour followed by honey, chocolate, mint, citrus zest, pine.
ENJOY: Sipping mezcal is enjoyed slowly and with friends..
