Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
This mezcal presents a pristine, crystalline liquid that almost shimmers when poured, offering a sense of purity and elegance.
A complex olfactory landscape greets the senses, opening with a bouquet of tropical fruits—chiefly pineapple and mango—intermingled with the signature smokiness expected of high-quality mezcals. Subtle notes of fresh-cut grass and mineral elements contribute to a nose that is as invigorating as it is complex.
Upon tasting, Wild Jabali presents an intricate interplay of flavors. There's the immediate brightness of citrus fruits, which quickly transitions into a nuanced smokiness. This smokiness is complemented by an earthy, herbal character, capturing the very essence of the rugged landscapes where the agave grows. The mezcal is beautifully balanced, its complexity never overwhelming the senses but inviting further exploration.
The finish is long, clean, and perpetually evolving. It starts with a mineral sharpness and ends in a smooth cascade of smoky notes and a slight spiciness, leaving a warmth that lingers.
Despite its complexity, the mezcal is extraordinarily smooth, a testament to the expert distillation practices employed by Del Maguey.
