A spirit with “heart”. Alipus is a co-op made up of mezcal producers throughout Oaxaca. With the help of Los Danzantes they have banded together to produce a series of single-village mezcals, each displaying the particular terroir and traditions of each mezcalero and village. San Balthazar carries the distinction of being fermented using wild yeast in pine vats by Mezcalero Don Cosme Hernandez. It is a “high elevation” mezcal made from agave espadin grown at an elevation of 5,700ft in very rocky soil.
Nose: Gentle smoke and agave distillate with a mineral, tinny edge.
Palate: Great mouthfeel, more roast (burned?) agave and balanced with sweetness. Earthy, but not particularly vegetal at all.
Finish: Sugar cane smoke.
