Barril, Mezcal, El Jolgorio

Barril is a subspecies of the Karwinskii family of agaves that grows wild in hilly areas. It grows a long stalk, resembling a tree and creates a mezcal of great complexity, balancing sweetness and citrus.  Like its relatives Cuixe and Madrecuixe, Barril grows a straight stalk upward. Once its leaves are sheared, the piña is long and cylindrical, like a log.  Its flavor is more woody, fibrous and packed with notes of green pepper.
