Nuestra Soledad San Baltazar Guelavila Mezcal is a magnum opus of Mexican spirit craftsmanship, hailing from the artisanal distilleries of Oaxaca’s San Baltazar Guelavila region. True to the profound, mystical character of Mezcal, this offering is an unaged, or "Joven," expression, captured straight from the stills with an ABV that can range between 47% to 50%. Made with 100% Espadín agave, this Mezcal is meticulously crafted through traditional methods, including underground roasting and natural fermentation.

Upon the first sip, the palette is assaulted by a burst of dynamic flavors. It starts with a deep, ashy smokiness that is gracefully counterbalanced by tones of fresh green herbs and a subtle undercurrent of caramelized pineapple. The mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth for a spirit of this potency, adding a layer of refinement to its robust character.
The finish is long and fulfilling, leaving a warm, smoky echo accompanied by a crisp mineral quality. Occasional notes of cracked pepper and citrus zest make a fleeting appearance, rendering each sip an adventurous exploration.
Nuestra Soledad San Baltazar Guelavila Mezcal's broad flavor spectrum makes it an excellent candidate for both sipping and mixing. On the culinary front, consider pairing it with rich, spicy dishes like mole poblano to accentuate its complex profile.
