Apaluz Joven is distilled using mature estate-grown agave Durangensis (around 12 years old) in the state of Durango. Mezcalero Antonio Panuco, or The Tiger as he is known, represents the family owned business which has been crafting their Mezcal for three generations. After cooking for 3 days in a volcanic stone oven heated by huizache, pine and oak, the oven is covered with sacks of ixtle, pine leaf, wet grass, and the silt soil of a nearby stream. The cooked agave is then hand mashed and aged in oak vats where it ferments using well-water and proprietary yeast before being distilled in copper pots with thick pine coverings. Apaluz Mezcal Joven is an Artisanal Mezcal with a light smokiness on the nose. The palate offers smooth and rich notes with flavors of vanilla, citrus, smoked woods, spice, and tamarind. The flavors linger on the pallet for a delightful, long finish.
