Real Minero Barril Mezcal is a well-regarded artisanal mezcal with distinct characteristics. It is made from the agave Barril (Agave karwinskii), which is noted for its barrel-like shape and is relatively rare in the international market. This mezcal is known for its full-bodied profile with notes of tropical fruit and vanilla.
The mezcal is produced by the Ángeles family in Santa Catarina Minas, who are fourth-generation mezcal producers. The family's dedication to traditional methods is evident in their use of earthenware pots for distillation, a technique that is labor-intensive but contributes to the mezcal's unique qualities.
Tasting notes from various reviews highlight a range of flavors and experiences. Some reviewers mention a clay nose with vanilla and agave, along with dry earth, wet stone, and banana, leading to a smooth finish without a harsh burn. Others have noted flavors such as allspice, brown sugar, salted meats, and a touch of leather, contributing to a complex and enjoyable tasting experience. The mezcal has also been described as having a grassy and slightly citrusy nose, with a palate that includes dark chocolate, coconut, and pine, balanced with a medium-long finish of forest floor and minerals.
There are different batches and blends available, each offering a unique taste profile. Some blends have been noted for their creamy texture, minerality, and smoky notes, with flavors ranging from floral to fruity, including dandelion, lemon, fried plantains, black raspberries, and vanilla.
Real Minero Barril Mezcal is highly sought after and is considered a premium mezcal. Its production is limited, and its artisanal nature makes it a favorite among mezcal enthusiasts.
