Montelobos is an artisanal mezcal made in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca produced with 100% organically certified agave espadín. The mezcal is crafted by world-renowned agave expert Iván Saldaña. It is made according to his vision and passion for agave and artisanal mezcal with respect for traditional production methods, sustainability, and the quality of life in the communities and families who have produced mezcal for generations.

Montelobos Mezcal (86.4 proof)
Visual: Clear.
Nose: Sweet smoke, roasted agave and toasted bread. Soft and warm like a Mexican sunset.
Taste: Smooth and smokey with a hint of nuttiness. After a few sips, cocoa and corn husk add an offbeat dimension.
Finish: Long, with a gentle smokiness and laid back hint of caramelization.
Overall: A contemplative mezcal which can be paired well with pork, corn or chili poblano dishes. Works well as a nightcap too.  Very nice indeed.
GSN Rating: A-
