Noble Coyote Capon Mezcal 750ml
For Espadín Capón, maestros Marcos y Eleazar only use the biggest, heaviest, and most sugary agaves—the cream of the crop. Capón means that the agave is harvested at the exact fullest point of maturation. This Noble Coyote Espadín Capón was awarded "Best Mezcal - 2018" at the New York World Wine & Spirits Competition.
Floral, perfume, and spice aromas jump out of the glass. Wood and dried tangerine peel dominate the palate, followed by delicate lemongrass and robust anise, transitioning into a seemingly endless peppery finish.
Espadín Capón (agave angustifolia) refers to mezcal that is only made from the agave “capado." This means that 100% of the piñas (agave cores) which are used for mezcal production have started growing a quiote or flowering stalk. When an agave plant flowers, a large amount of energy is required to grow the 20-foot-tall flower. When the quiote is cut off by the maestros, the sugar that would have been used to grow the flower is concentrated in the piña. When agave is harvested for regular mezcal the mother agave is harvested along with the baby agaves (hijuelos) that sprout off the mother plant. The baby agaves are put in the oven with the mother agave but are not as productive since they are smaller and have not yet flowered.
To produce Espadín Capón, only the biggest and strongest mother plants are selected and used for processing. In Espadín Capón the average weight is 90 kg per piña. The concentrated sugars from cutting the agave flowers gives Espadín Capón a sweeter and more complex flavor with hints of floral and fruit notes.
