El Buho Mezcal 750ml
Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating(1 customer review)
- Mezcal, Tequila
El Buho is a hand-crafted Mezcal made in the heart of Oaxaca. Hand selected Espadin agave plants are harvested and then slowly roasted in a stone pit fire between Oaxacan earth and local mesquite for a week. These pina pieces are then crushed by a burro on a tohona stone mill. Well water is added to the resulting aguamiel crush and this smoked brew ferments for a few days. The mash is then double distilled in a fifth generation alembic still, drip by drip. Sip it, mix it or shoot it with a beer on the side.

Gabriel Velazquez –
This amazing notes described perfectly my experience with this mezcal, Thank you Tess Rose Lampert / Mezcalistas
Fresh fruity pineapple aromas with green grassy notes and just a hint of smoke, classic Oaxaca.
The texture starts out soft, gently coating the palate with tropical fruit flavors before peppery green spiciness kicks in, adding depth and complexity. A touch of smoke rounds out the flavor without overpowering the agave core.
The flagship mezcal of the brand, this traditionally produces mezcal includes a 7 day cook in underground stone lined horno, 10 day fermentation in pine vats with wild yeasts, horse drawn tahona crush, and double distillation in copper pot stills. Batch sizes are approximately 5,000 liters, produced 2-4 times per year.
