Alipus San Baltazar is made with agave Espadin. Don Cosme Hernandez and his son Cirilo ferment this Mezcal in very old pine vats. Their Mezcals are soft, well-fruited, with minerality. San Baltazar is the most popular Alip√∫s in the Mexican market (by sales), meaning that it can be more limited abroad.
Nose / Aroma / Smell
The aroma is fragrant and soft with notes of citrus zest, guava, cilantro, and mysterious florals.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile leans on the citrus with parsley and sage herbals over a distant note of ripe banana.
The finish is crisp and brief, but ripe with lingering herbal notes.
