Farolito Penca Verde is made by maestro Valentin Celis, who has been making mezcal for In Situ Mezcaleria in Oaxaca City for many years. Made with agave Penca Verde; on the bottle it is labeled as ‘Agave Sp’ which means it is an unclassified species. Once cooked and crushed, the agave are fermented in clay pots, and then distilled in a small clay pot still. The initial Farolito batch imported into the US was 702 bottles.
A hint of wood smoke on the nose, lightly sweet with a hint of lavender. On the palate intensely juicy and sweet. Honey, lavender, big citrus, some earthy notes, lemon brine, more honey, and then just a perfectly balanced smoked meat. This is the honey glazed burnt end of mezcal. A drool-inducing finish that goes on and on with a lingering sweetness. Remarkably distinct.
