Mezcal Nucano is an artisanal mezcal produced in the region of San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca. Their batches are always limited to ensure artisanal production, and they are made by a 5th generation mezcalero who helps to bring old-world mezcal production into modern times. They make an Anejo, Reposado, and several Joven mezcals that feature different silvestre agave. They are entirely Oaxacan owned and operated.

Tasting notes Serge Valentin: 86 points

Cuishe is a family of wild agaves that includes Barril, a variety that I’ve tried before and that was just stellar, if I remember well.

Colour: white.

Nose: it is an earthier one, we’re almost finding notes of stewed turnips. Also Jerusalem artichokes, zucchinis, mushrooms, and black olives. Burning cigar as well – not a Mexican cigar mind you.

Mouth: another very good one, a tad better civilised than the Tobala. A tad sourer as well, perhaps more on sweeter chutneys if you like. Love the cologne-y background, while such flavours usually lead to utter disasters. Not the case here, at all. Finish: long, a tad more floral, and always soapy/perfume-y – in a great way!

Comments: another mezcal that I could quaff while watching all episodes of La Casa de Papel – but indeed I’d need a whole bottle. Perhaps three.
