Manso Sahuayo

An Agave Sp (unspecified agave) that is cultivated from the area of Jiquilpan and Sahuayo. It is Locally referred to as Cenizo, due to the color of the pencas, but the CRM recognizes it as Manso Sahuayo. This seems to be a heavy favorite amongst agave enthusiasts.

Tequilana

This particular batch was 8 tons; 4 of which were regular sized blue weber and 4 tons were criollo blue weber, all farmed and cultivated in Indaparapeo. Criollo are small heirloom agaves that have more sugar and flavor than their bigger counterparts.  The aromas it gave off after cooking and the taste were amazing.    

Aroma- citrus, baking spices, custard, fresh agave, bubblegum

Flavor- delicate smoke, white pepper, cooked agave

Lote: 2 

Cook time: 168 hours 

Rest time post cooking: 144 hours 

Fermentation time: 288 hours

Chino Silvestre

This is all wild Agave Cupreata that we roast for much longer, and (fully matured)   capon. We let the agave rest a week after roasting, used much more bagazo in the tinas for the fermentation, waited longer for it to ferment, applied only gentle touches at initiation of fermentation, and then distilled with different cuts.  Overall this expression is a beautiful roller coaster.  

Aroma- lemon, evergreen forest, pine, pledge wood cleaner (in a good way)

Flavor- slightly savory, cooked agave, anise

 

Lote:

Cook time: 168 hours

Rest time post cooking: 144 hours

Fermentation time: 240 hours

Bruto

These wild and huge agave are of the inaequidens family, harvested in the hills just past Etucuaro.  These massive agaves have low brix and yield, and due to those complexities in working with Bruto we had to inoculate the fermentation from Pulque made from this same maguey.  For each vat of 1000 liters we fill it to about 800 liters of bagazo and water and use 20 liters of pulque for the inoculation. Some expressions of this have been brought up as Alto from Michoacan, but both in Cotija, where my family is from and where we have one of our new vinatas, and in the area of Querendaro they refer to it as Bruto.    

Aroma- leather, tobacco, blueberries, soil

Flavor- sweet agave, bitter roots
