This unique mezcal is distilled with an Ibérico de Bellota ham (butchered from Spanish free-range acorn-fed black-footed Ibérico pigs) hung in the top of the still. The idea to use Bellota ham came from Chef Ruben García, part of Spanish American chef, José Andrés’ Think Food Group.

Review and Tasting

Sampled on 01/08/2015

Appearance

(sample bottle Lot. SOM 135) Crystal clear.

Aroma

Iberico Bellota ham cubes, almond, baked apples, vanilla custard and black currant jam with wood bonfire smoke. Faint rose blossom emerges with time.

Taste

Huge! Sweet, meaty and jammy with berry fruit, rose blossom and smoky bacon. Bellota ham notes grow with successive sips.

Aftertaste

Salty dry Iberico ham with charcoal barbecue smoke and spice.

Overall

Dried salty meat with subtle smoke, berry fruit jam and subtle floral notes. Wonderfully complex this explodes with flavour.
