Tio Rey is one of Mexico's most renowned mezcalero masters and for this special expression, he creates a different blend of agaves each time. After surveying and harvesting only the agaves at peak maturity, the plants are traditionally ground and distilled in tiny hand made clay and bamboo pot stills allowing Tio Rey to have full control over the quality of the spirit. For this batch of 716 liters, the selection was made for 62% Espadin, 28% Coyote, and 10% Mexicano agaves. Coming off smoky and vegetal at first, the mezcal makes a right hand turn and mellows out while it continues to exude notes of green melon, pomegranate, geranium, and wet earth. The palate is nectar-like with underlying flavors of hay, rock, and honey. This is above all a spirit that speaks to its incredible origins.
