Derrumbes Tamaulipas This rare view into Tamaulipas is one to cherish as its an opportunity to safely visit an area stricken with violence. Maestro Mezcalero Cuauthemóc Jacquez delivers a stunning ensamble with a blend of 3 agave: Univittata, Funkiana and Americana. Americana is the only one found outside of the state. The result is a high-energy spirit that feels sweet, dry and rich.
