La Jicarita Sierra Negra Mezcal
This 25+ year Sierra Negra agave was harvested at full maturity, letting its penca leaves grow to a weight to 4.4 lbs (2 kilos) each. Planted in a steep hillside plot, this agave is cultivated in the high altitude of the Sierra Norte de Oaxaca. The combina- tion of drastic temperature shifts, high elevation desert drainage, and concentrated sunlight produces a mezcal rugged and hearty in character.
