Kimo Sabe Mezcal Joven: Albedo
Kimo Sabe // Mexico
The company works with local farmers in the Grower Support Program to sustainably grow and harvest the agave used in the mezcal. Kimo Sabe ("trusted friend") mezcal was made by using a combination of new traditions--agaves steam-cooked in ovens, then milled and old traditions--agaves roasted in open pits then crushed with tahonas. These two batches ferment separately and then are blended together before distillation. The third distillation is done in a pot-still.The joven is bottled unaged at 43% ABV.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"This softer style of mezcal is medium-bodied with chocolaty overtones and only a hint of smoke. Citrus peel, chili and jasmine tea emerge on further sips. The finish is smooth and sippable, though might feel a bit tame for palates more acclimated to bolder mezcal flavors. "
