Derrumbes Michoacan Joven Mezcal NV, Mexico (700ml)
This product is currently sold out.
| 46% ABV | A full-flavoured mezcal, with savoury wood smoke complemented by sweet fruit, vegetal notes and a refreshing minerality.
NOSE: Sharp vegetal notes: ferns, fresh cut grass and pine needles. It also has a sweet note, almost like Chinese-style sweet corn soup, with nail varnish remover, ash and wood smoke. There are touches of white wine vinegar, although without the acid hit that suggests, and freshly cracked stone. PALATE: Intense agave pepper and sweet fruit to start, quickly calming to a mineral-heavy, sweet tropical fruit juice character. Running behind that is a strong, agave pepperiness and a thick bed of woody smoke from the nose. FINISH: Long, with stones, camp fires and apples.
