Pensador Ensamble Mezcal

Don Atenogenes and his family create Pensador Mezcal in his fields near Miahuatlan, Oaxaca, using traditional methods which remain largely unchanged since the 16th Century. They use a combination of espadín and madre-cuishe agave to create it - these are popular agave varieties for good reasons. The process from harvest to bottle each batch of Pensador takes two months - with the hand bottling and labelling taking it closer to three.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Oak-y smoke, roasted apricot, black pepper and a mineral-rich earthiness supported by citrus and grape.

Reviews for Pensador Ensamble Mezcal
The mezcal for me
I'd heard a lot of good stuff about mezcal before i tried it. Articles in the guardian and ft, saw rick steins road to mexico. I had very high expectations but i struggled to find a brand which worked for me. A lot of the bottles i tried we're so big on smoke that they had this chemical, petrol flavour which really didn't work for me. A friend put me on to Pensador and I've finally found my mezcal. The smoke is still there but its softer and just one part of the picture. Stone fruits, aromatics, and a round-ness which makes me think of aged spirits. A sensational liquid. Nice bottle as well

My go to
I first tried mezcal in mexico last summer and since then I've worked my way through a lot of the brands which are available in the UK. Pensador is the one I keep coming back to. Smoother than most but also complex and with just the right intensity. Really moreish stuff

Good quality reliable stuff
No wow factor. Clean, well made, generic, not too idiosyncratic, smooth, fresh. High quality but not memorable.

Great mezcal
Took a chance on this new brand and it really paid off. Fantastic mellow taste with a rich earthy smokiness - definitely my favourite mezcal. Highly recommended - do try it.

Instant top shelf staple
I have a fairly well-stocked liquor cabinet at home, since Pensador made an entry everything else has been collecting dust. It's delicious, take no prisoners kind of stuff. Try it and you'll see!
