Description: On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero, Durango and San Luis Potosí varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Bozal believes that something wild produces a far richer spirit.
Aromas of roasted agave and savory herbs. The palate exhibits a nice balance of citrus, herb (fennel and bay leaf), and saline. Expect a little sweet heat and a nice touch of smoke on the finish.
