That means that all certified mezcal that's been diluted has used water to achieve a lower proof, instead of this old method. The tails from the first run are full of life and complexity. They add texture and structure to the spirit adding some acidity and some exceptional floral agave notes. This limited edition batch of Mezcal was harvested, roasted, milled, fermented, and double distilled by head of production Karina Abad at the Destileria Los Danzantes in Santiago Matatlan.
The "old way" of making mezcal is a loaded term, but in this case Los Nahuales is referring to a method of dilution using the tails of the first run (codas) with the heart of the second distillation. This practice was originally banned by the NORMA regulations governing the production and export of mezcal, but Nahuales has had the prohibition over turned.
A pleasant smoke, some sweet earth and clay notes, with a slightly minty big ripe agave body. Spearmint and peppermints both, crushed aromatic lighter peppercorns, lots of guanabana.
