In the Central Oaxacas Valleys, maguey Arroqueño (Agave americana var. oaxacensis) is highly prized for its delicate and sweet flavors and its reportedly long lifetime (up to two decades). In the Mixteca Alta, the same species is colloquially referred to as De Horno, as an homage the historical use of the enormous “pencas” to wrap up goat and sheep meat in the preparation of underground barbacoa ovens. De Horno seems to grow more prominently in the Mixteca than in the valleys, and has a reportedly shorter life time (12-15 years). Nevertheless, it is rare to see these expressions exported to the U.S., especially one that has been resting since 2014, making this an extra special bottling to savor.
