Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
In its liquid form, the mezcal possesses a perfectly clear, almost crystalline appearance, with a certain depth that beckons an inspection of its complex aromas and flavors. The liquid clings to the glass in a way that indicates both body and structure.
The aroma that emanates from Lamata Cenizo Durango Mezcal is nothing short of a sensorial journey. Freshly-cut Cenizo agave meets the nose first, followed by a delightful complexity of herbal and mineral nuances. A backdrop of woodsmoke creates an almost ethereal contrast, interspersed with flashes of green peppercorn and lime zest.
On the palate, a profound complexity unravels. The spirituous foundation is immediately evident, opening up to an elaborate series of flavors—ranging from the unmistakable smoky character of the roasted agave to more subtle undertones of dried herbs, mineral-rich soil, and a barely-there sweetness akin to wild honey.
The mezcal offers a long, sustained finish that reaffirms its complexity. The earthiness and smokiness are elongated, finally concluding in a beautiful balance of warmth and herbal nuances that reverberate through the senses.
The unaged nature of this mezcal preserves its elemental intensity. The texture is both smooth and layered, made more profound by its high ABV, which rather than overpowering, complements its manifold characteristics.
Third Base Market & Spirits Perspective:
Lamata Cenizo Durango Mezcal is not just a beverage; it is a narrative—one that tells the story of its native Durango through each meticulous step of its production, from the harvesting of the Cenizo agave to the traditional pit roasting and natural fermentation. It is a spirit that truly resonates with Third Base Market & Spirits' mission to bring authentic, quality liquors to our discerning customers.
Crafted in limited batches due to the constraints of traditional production methods and the availability of Cenizo agave, this is an offering to be savored and appreciated for its scarcity as much as for its depth and complexity.
