Expert Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Third Base Market & Spirits is proud to present Mezcal de Leyendas Espadin, a mezcal that captivates with both its depth and nuance. Originating from the biodiverse region of San Juan del Río in Oaxaca, this mezcal is made using 100% Espadin agave, which is traditionally considered the genetic "mother" of blue agave. Distilled in copper stills and bottled at an assertive 47% ABV, this is a mezcal designed for both the purist and the adventurer.
Upon nosing, an immediate burst of earthy agave notes is apparent, seamlessly integrated with a layer of smokiness derived from the traditional pit-roasting method. Hints of fresh citrus and wild herbs such as thyme and rosemary provide a fragrant backdrop.
The palate is an intriguing kaleidoscope of flavors. The robust agave character takes center stage, adorned by varying shades of complexity. Undertones of green apple, black pepper, and a whisper of minerality dance across the palate. The smokiness is palpable but never overbearing, offering a smoldering intensity that perfectly complements the agave core.
The finish is enduring, a long, contemplative journey with echoes of sweet agave and smoke, ending in a delightful spiciness that encourages another sip. Intriguing notes of toasted oak and vanilla occasionally surface, adding to the multi-layered experience.
Mezcal de Leyendas Espadin is eminently versatile. Its complexity makes it a superb sipping mezcal, best appreciated neat or with just a sliver of orange. For those inclined toward cocktails, its robust character shines brightly in classics like the Mezcal Mule or an avant-garde Oaxacan Old Fashioned.
