This is one of the very few examples of Coyote Mezcal to find their way to Canada. Coyote is a sub spicies of Agave Americana Oaxaensis, only found in a few remote valleys. It is a plant that has long, skinny needle-like leaves and can be incredibly difficult to harvest, but incredibly rewarding to drink.
Producer Tasting Note
Aroma: Fruity, effeminate nose of strawberries, cherries, bananas and mango, as well as powerful notes of cooked agave and licorice.
Palate: Fruity and floral, with delicate notes of licorice, aniseed and mint. Moist earth compliments the red bush fruit characteristics. Desserty chocolate and vanilla accents as well.
Finish: Long, sweet, pleasing finish. A gentle giant at 48.5%, as this mezcal is very sophisticated, very intense with a long lasting flavor
Similar to the entire Los Siete Misterios lineup, the 2010 Arroqueño was distilled twice in hand made clay pots to achieve a traditional Oaxacan ‘pot strength’ mezcal. The agaves were cooked in earth oven pits, using nearby deadwood and river stones. They were hand smashed in Sabino wood canoes. Fermentation occurs naturally using wild yeasts. This mezcal comes straight from an estate Palenque in Sola de Vega. Los Siete Misterios continues to be an international benchmark when it comes to traditional clay pot mezcal distilling. Coyote is a plant that has long, skinny needle-like leaves and can be incredibly difficult to harvest, but incredibly rewarding to drink. There are very few examples of Coyote that ever reach the market place.
