Derrumbes Mezcal Tasting Notes

Posted: March 6, 2015 in Mezcal, White Spirits

Derrumbes Mezcal Oaxaca 48%

Espadrin Agave/ Lot D-001/ Dist: April 2013/ Tasted: Oct 2014

Lightly smoked aromas of pure/ natural/ earthy agave with hints of white wine vinegar, straw and devolping notes of manure and pepper. Lightly oiled and very complex 

The palate shows loads of natural agave character and pepper. Gently smoked with a serious intensity. Very long and very peppery. The alcohol does ry the finish a little but it definitely has some depth! 

Derrumbes Mezcal Michoacan 49%

Cenizo Agave/ Lot 2/ Dist: May 2014/ Tasted: Oct 2014

The nose is pungent and smoky. Fresher than the Oaxaca with again a natural agave character. Hints of white wine vinegar and a touch of vanilla come through. 

The palate is very fresh and citric with gentle pepper and white wine vinegar notes. The black pepper notes develop pleasantly to be joined by a touch of white pepper. Lovely depth and again a little dry on the finish, but the spoirit has plenty of substance to balance.
