Traditional pit-roasted, mule-drawn tahona-crushed, open fermented, double-distilled mezcal from 100% semi-wild Agave Mexicano (Agave rhodacantha) harvested at 10 years of age, bottled at 47% ABV. Produced in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, by mezcalero Valentín Cortes. Agave Mexicano, a rare varietal of A. Rhodacantha that prefers to grow in moist areas, lower in elevation. The agave is very large, often with black thorns, and has highly concentrated sugars. The resulting mezcal is extremely powerful and complex with a long finish.
