Tasting notes:Don Amado Mezcals are made from 100 percent estate-grown agave plants that have been smoke- and steam-roasted, naturally fermented and twice-distilled. Don Amado’s producers have been making our special mezcal since the year 1700, and are renown throughout Oaxaca for creating a spirit that livens the senses with the citrus, floral effervescence of agave. Don Amado, contains one-third tobala, which is more pungent than espadin. This mezcal is produced at Real de Minas, a palenque at Santa Catarina Minas, near Ocotlan. The distilling takes place in clay pots, a technique that has almost vanished. German Bonifacio Arellanes Robles roasts the agave over wood transported by burro from distant mountains, a six-hour round trip. It takes about one month to complete one batch.
