Montelobos Joven Mezcal
Montelobos Mezcal was created by agave specialist Ivan Saldaña, PhD in Botany, and agave specialist Don Abel López Mateos, a fifth generation mezcalero. Saldaña’s vision was to create a mezcal with a mosaic of balance and complexity that celebrates the characteristics of the agave plant. His ambition was that anyone tasting it could discover something new every time in the distinctive and layered spirit.
Nose is smoky, strong but not overwhelming, with roasted agave, roasted jalapeño, and oyster shells. Entry has sweet agave, smoke, spicy white pepper, and salt. Finish is very long and slightly dry with white pepper lingering with smoke and citrus.
