Ojo de Tigre
Ojo De Tigre Reposado Mezcal 37% 70cl
Ojo De Tigre - or 'Eye Of The Tiger', named after the tiger's eye stone that provides good fortune - is a collboration between the Casa Lumbre Distillery (producers of Abasolo corn whiskey and Nixta corn liqueur) and Mexican actor and producer Luis Gerardo Mendez – his film 'The Nobel Family' was Mexico’s highest-ever grossing film in 2013. He was also in the 2019 reboot of Charlie’s Angels and co-starred with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston in 'Murder Mystery'The spirit is made using Maguey,– a hardier type of Agave that can last up to 35 years before flowering. Espadin maguey from Oaxaca and Tobala maguey from Puebla are cooked in an underground pit before milling using a tahona, a traditional stone mill normally powered by a donkey or horse. Double distillation in a copper column still produces a cleaner flavour profile which accentuates quite intense peppery smoke notes, before around 6 months 'resting' (giving the term 'reposado') in ex-Bourbon barrels to impart colour and to allow the smoky tones to soften and sweeten.
The end result maintain a peppery edge with hints of dark chocolate and citrus fruits to come through. It works a lot better in a Margarita than the unaged Joven, but to be honest it's fantastic just sipping neat as though it were a whisky.
