A delicious, hand-crafted Espadin Mezcal with surprising notes of melon, black pepper, and smoke.
A proudly 100% Oaxacan Mezcal, Mezcal Nucano was born when two young Oaxacans who loved their homeland, culture, and tradition wondered why this delicious agave drink doesn't get the worldwide fame it deserves. Why isn’t the whole world drinking Mezcal? And so came to be Nucano, produced by local maestro mezcaleros. While giving back to the local community, the brand offers authentic artisanal Mezcal for the rest of the world to enjoy. The entire value chain – production, suppliers, administration – takes place in Oaxaca.
When it comes to fine Mezcal, the details matter. Nucano Mezcal Espadín Joven is 100% Espadin agave from San Dionisio Ocotepec in the middle of Oaxaca. The agave are given eight years to mature in the field before hand-harvesting. They piñas are slow roasted in a conical earthen oven and crushed by horse-drawn stone tahona. The pulp is naturally fermented in oak vats and double-distilled in a copper pot over direct wood fire. This Joven Mezcal is un-aged and bottled at 45% ABV.

The aroma is herbal with an almost hogo note like you find in old Rums over Ancho chili, smoky agave, and dark berries with a black pepper and ginger kick.
Flavor / Taste / Palate
The flavor profile is complex for an Espadin Spirit with a distinct melon note followed by more black peppercorns, mirepoix, and something floral on the back palate.
The finish is peppery and warm.
