Peloton de la Muerte Espadin Mezcal
Peloton de la Muerte’s flavor profile is defined by creamy caramel and herbaceous notes from the agave while offering beautiful, subtle smoke from the wood that is used to cook the agave to deliver the most balanced mezcal for cocktail creation.
Peloton de la Muerte is a very clean, well-balanced mezcal that isproduced with traditional methods inSantiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, which is also known as “The World’s Capital of Mezcal.”The label of Peloton de la Muerte, which means Brigade of Death, was the flag used by the insurgentsduring the Mexican Revolution who called themselves “the squadron of death for the suffering Hidalgo”,who tried to enact revenge for the death of the priest Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, the founding father ofMexico’s independence.While many of the mezcals on the market possess overpowering smokiness that make it difficult to drinkmore than one cocktail, Pelotón de la Muerte has one of the most balanced and quaffable flavor profilesout there.
Mezcal Joven or “young” is bottled within two months of distillation without barrel aging and will appear clear, like a Vodka or Gin. Longer barrel aging, with the principal aim to soften and round a spirit’s flavor profile, is often most prized by connoisseurs. However, many die-hard Mezcal enthusiasts insist that oak takes away from the purity of the agave flavors—ranging from earthy and smoky to sweet and floral, often in the same Mezcal—and that Mezcal Joven is the best expression.
