DON LUCIO MORALES LÓPEZ, ESPADÍNSAN DIONISIO OCOTEPEC, OAX.
Don Lucio and his sons represent the third and fourth generations of mezcaleros in the Morales Family, and the first to work entirely with agave grown by the family. The finished product is a beautiful, easy drinking mezcal that is true to the place and people who created it. Complex enough to be enjoyed on its own, at 91 proof it’s also assertive enough to shine through in cocktails where lower ABV mezcales can easily get lost.
Smell: roasted meat, tropical fruit, ground corn, lime pith, pine tar Sip: leather, caramelized banana Swallow: mineral, barley
