Holy moly this hit the spot. Sure, my opinion might be slightly clouded by the awesome ambiance and food, but damn, that was a good tepeztate.
El Jolgorio’s products are some of the best I’ve tried, and this espadin is no different. Quite smooth for 47%, with notes of baked agave and citrus, and a bit of pepper. Not so much smoke so the real flavors can really shine.
Sugary, earthy, smell of agave. I really like El Jolgorio mezcals and their espadin is one of my favorite espadins for sipping. Not too much smoke and has a nice spice to it
I’m a sucker for tepeztates for their herbal, grassy notes.. and this one hits all the right spots. The first time I tried this one at Mezcalogía in Oaxaca, I feel in love. When you smell and try it, it’s like biting into an herb garden.. and that’s exactly what I expect from a good tepeztate. Very smooths as well, I could drink this one all day long.
