MONTELOBOS MEZCAL JOVES
Montelobos (mountain of wolves) is an unaged mezcal produced from organic espadín agave. The agaves are sourced Loma Larga in Santiago Matalán Oaxaca. After roasting for 5-7 days in a stone pit, the agaves are crushed with a tahona and allowed to naturally ferment. Montelobos was created by Dr. Iván Saldaña and is produced by 5th generation mezcalero, Don Abel Lopez.
"The nose is fairly straight-forward with abundant notes of smoked meats and brine. The palate is where things get more interesting; flavors of lemon zest, salt, grilled rosemary and ash are detected. Overall, this is an enjoyable mezcal and at this price point, one that is very suitable for a cocktail."
