Born from centuries of mezcalero craft and enlightened by the methodical pursuit of perfection, Montelobos Espadin is an unaged joven mezcal, crafted from meticulously cultivated, 100% sustainably grown, organic agave Espadin. An underground pit is filled with volcanic stone which is heated using 2 different woods which roasts the agave for 5 days. It is milled under the weight of a traditional single Cantera stone Tahona, and then wild fermented in open-air pine vats for up to 7 days. Following the artisanal method with firewood heating copper stills, the mezcal is small batch twice distilled to achieve a perfect balance of sweetness and subtle smoke. This artisinally produced joven mezcal is strikingly balanced and complex, with a bold integration between all the notes that mezcal has to offer. Montelobos Espadin is an experience unto itself.View all products by MontelobosCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

My favorite Mezcal for the money. Good amount of smoke and smooth.

A very interesting flavor!
Awful after taste. You're better off chewing on bark.

We bought this because of the brand's commitments to sustainability and responsibility to all of the people involved in its production, but it's also really great mezcal.
Although this brand of mezcal was my introduction to this unique spirit it was a great 1st experience! Montelobos was recommended to me by a close friend. He said this brand is “a great mezcal for beginners.” I was forewarned of the smokiness but it was not overbearing and quite subtle! I was also told mezcal is meant to be consumed at room temperature but I found sipping it straight and cold to be quite pleasant. Try pairing with fresh, salted tomato slices and Oaxaca cheese. Delicious!

I ran across this Mezcal by chance and decided to try it. So glad I did! It’s smooth enough to drink straight or have ima a mixed cocktail. Can’t get enough of this stuff!

Thought is smoky as I would have thought but pretty good for the price.
