Mezcal Pierde Almas Conejo
Pierde Almas // Oaxaca, Mexico
This extremely limited release is similar to the Pierde Almas Pechuga, in that it begins with double-distilled Espadín mezcal. As with the Pechuga, the mezcal is infused with a blend of wild fruits, herbs and nuts, including apples, pineapples, almonds, pecans, citrus blossoms and anise. Instead of a turkey breast, the carcass of a wild rabbit hangs in the still during the third distillation.
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 rarest of the Pierde Almas mezcals starts with tropical fruit and agave on the floral nose. The rich, buttery palate offers more agave and fruit, with herbal and almond notes, and a smoky, gamey quality in the background that is more pronounced than the Pechuga. The warm, medium finish offers more agave, herbs and hints of smoky meat."
