Memorable Mezcal Artesenal Joven 100% Arroqueño Agave – Box with 12
Your mezcal will be ready in 20 years, sir! Please have a seat…
Memorable Mezcal Artesanal Joven 100% Arroqueño is, rather unsurprising, made 100% from the Arroqueño agave. This agave is something special though. Among botanists this agave is thought to be a genetic forefather to the Espadin Agave species (which is the most commonly used agave for mezcal), so it is easily concluded that this is an ancient species.
A native to the Oaxaca Central Valley the Arroqueño takes up to 25 years to mature and grows big. The pinã of an mature agave can as high as a fullgrown man and the entire plant reach 4 meters! If the agave blossoms, the quiote can reach up to 10 meters.
This wonderful joven mezcal is made from wild harvested agaves. Processing the agaves for mezcal is done using traditional tools like an earth oven and a tahona for milling the cooked agave. Memorable Mezcal picks the wild harvested agaves by hand and it takes a lot of knowledge and wisdom to pick pinas which are in the same stage of maturity.
The aroma of this wonderful mezcal comes with notes of cotton candy, vanilla cream and some mellow cream cheese. The palate is warm with soft cream cheese, minerals, notes of earthy, Bell Peppers and coriander.
With a lovely medium length finish of minerals, Cream Cheese, Bubblegum and peppers this is truly an extraordinarily good sipper
