Spirits Review

Bozal Coyote Wild Mezcal

Mezcal continues to be the nation’s most exciting spirit category. Bozal bottles intriguing mezcals made from Castilla, Borrego and Cuixe—wild agave varieties hand harvested from often precarious sites on remote mountainsides—but I was particularly smitten by the Coyote variety, harvested from Villa Sola de Vega in Oaxaca. A nuanced smokiness takes a backseat to potent flavors of pear, green herbs, dried earth and dark chocolate. It’s full bodied and rich, perfect for slow sipping under the stars.
