El Jolgorio Cenizo (A. Karwinskii)

El Jolgorio Cenizo is made with the rare agave Cenizo, which is a member of the Karwinskii family. Cenizo is notably difficult to work with.

El Jolgorio Cenizo is made with 100% agave Cenizo (Karwinskii) that took 14 years to mature. The first batch of this mezcal was released as a fairly large lot considering how seldom agave Cenizo is used in Oaxacan Mezcal. Master Mezcalero Ignacio Parada is well known for his work with wild agave, and this Cenizo is no exception to his strong record of creating great mezcal. Notes of this mezcal include sweet nectar, chalky minerals, and sea salt. It has a long, extended finish. Newer releases of this mezcal come in a black bottle. Newer bottles of this are no longer labelled Cenizo as the CRM told El Jolgorio that Cenizo could not be used to name this Karwinskii agave. Despite the local naming, this is now simply called A. Karwinskii.
