Nuestra Soledad // Oaxaca, Mexico
Nuestra Soledad is El Jolgorio's line of single-village mezcals. Their mezcal from San Luis Del Rio, in the east of the Valles Centrales region, is made from espadín agave. The agaves are roasted with mesquite and oak in pit ovens, fermented in open air, distilled twice in copper alembics.
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.
"The intense aroma of Nuestra Soledad's San Luis Del Rio mezcal may raise a warning flag, but it's actually very approachable on the palate. An initial hit of peppery spice gives way to a long finish with lots of minerality and just a hint of smoke. It's a very good, easy-to-enjoy distillate of espadín."
