Derrumbes Oaxaca is a perfect example of a mezcal from the Central Valley of Oaxaca. Made using Espadin agave, cooked in an underground pit, it is double-distilled and rested for three months before bottling. Citrus and sweetness combine with light smoke on the palate.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    Nose: Petrol, varnish, board markers, oily rags, black rubber plimsolls, cracked black pepper, boot polish and dark chocolate.

    Palate: Leather and wood smoke, with sweet cooked agave, oily notes, petrol and raisin sweetness.

    Finish: Long and smoky, with leather, olive oil and two-stroke.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    A bold liquid that leaves a viscous trail around the rim of the glass.

    On nosing, the first thing you notice is that this is a complex spirit. Initial investigation reveals fresh jasmine and citrus aromas before more pungent notes of acetone, pine and acacia honey are highlighted by a gentle smokiness.

    Lively on the palate, fresh flavours of citrus and pine combine with a rich sweetness from the agave to give a little spiciness again underlined by a subtle smokiness.

    The finish is extremely full, with the sweet character combining with the smokiness to make this mezcal very moreish indeed.
