Scorpion Mezcal

Scorpion Mezcal is produced in San Agustín de las Juntas, Oaxaca, Mexico by Master Distiller Douglas French. After harvesting at 9-12 years of maturity, agave hearts are steamed in wood-fired masonry ovens for 48-72 hours, then fermented in stainless steel and double-distilled in stainless steel pot stills. Scorpion Mezcal Silver is presented unaged or joven, with all of the fruity, savory & vegetal essences of cooked agave, while the Reposado and Añejo are aged in French oak barrels formerly used for Bordeaux from Saint-Émilion.

4x750mL

Awards:  Spirits of Mexico – Gold Medal ; Wine Enthusiast – Superb / Highly Recommended.

Beverage Tasting Institute – 96 points/Superlative, Platinum Medal –“Beautiful golden amber color. Intense aromas of roasted pineapple, raw honey, vanilla, caramel, cinnamon bark, fresh herbs, and smoldering embers. A rich, lush entry leads to a massive, off-dry full-bodied palate of roasted agave, grilled pineapple, wildflower honey, oiled leather, charred oak, exotic peppercorns, and brown spices. Finishes with a long, sweet fade of toffee, peppery spice, and smoky oak. Amazingly complex, balanced, and utterly delicious.”

F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal – Highly Recommended – The medium amber/harvest gold color is attractive and pure. The first nosings pick up intriguing, if oddly compelling notes of quinine, burnt match and furniture polish; additional time in the glass brings out deeper scents, especially onion, brine, olives, and damp earth. The palate entry is sooty, sweet, and close to creamy; at midpalate, the taste profile turns zesty, oaky sweet, charcoal-like, and, on the whole, savory. Finishes bittersweet and caramel-like. Nice job.

4x750mL

Awards: Spirits of Mexico – Gold Medal

Beverage Tasting Institute – 97 points/Superlative, Platinum Medal –“Brilliant pale amber color. Vibrant caramel, roasted pineapple, vanilla, pepper, smoky embers, and spice aromas. A supple entry leads to a velvety dry-yet-fruity full-bodied palate with intense vanilla, toffee, agave, grilled pepper, smoky wood, and exotic peppercorn flavors. Finishes with a rich, long fade of mocha, toffee, cracked black pepper, toasted oak, and spices. A wonderful Cognac-like mezcal with a superb wood treatment. A very impressive, world-class spirit.”

F. Paul Pacult’s Spirit Journal – Highly Recommended – The deep amber/burnished gold color is clean and free of debris. The first inhalations find typical mezcal scents such as India ink, and vinyl; after seven more minutes of air contact, the aroma adds burned/baked aromas. The palate entry is surprisingly sweet and mild; at midpalate, a robust ashy/sooty flavor takes charge of the flavor proceedings, elbowing out all other taste possibilities. Ends up on a moderately sweet, smoky note that's quite pleasant.
