Mezcal Clase Azul
Pack Size: 3 x 70cl
Country of Origin: Mexico
Mezcal Clase Azul is made with 100% wild agave Cenizo, which takes 12-15 years to mature. The agave Cenizo grows somewhat abundantly in Durango, where this mezcal is made. Clase Azul follows the same traditional palenque distillation process as any other artisinal mezcal. One impressive point about this mezcal is that the agave is milled by hand, rather than using a donkey and tahona.
Its underground cooking generates sweet notes of peanut, brown sugar, honey, ash, wood and chocolate. Meanwhile fermentation using stone piles with red oak, adds some ripened fruit notes.
