    To begin, please update your spelling of Tepeztate for this brand. I toured Oaxaca, and in this region, where the cooperative behind the brand Banhez is located, they use a ‘Z’ as opposed to an ‘X’. Regarding the flavor, this was by far one of the best Tepeztates that I’ve tasted. It had loads of spice and young green flavors, coupled by the mellow smoke that I’ve come to love about all of the Banhez products.

    The nose is filled with bright green bell pepper and a cheesey lactose. Aggressive but funky with a great spice. Notes of Cilantro and Basil. Honestly not hitting on some of the intense funk notes usually found in Tep. However I think this lot is one of the best Tepeztates I’ve had from a Refrecadora Still. Less sugar, less smoky protiens and tons and tons of green agave flavors.

    Lot TEJ460318. High salinity on the nose. A bit of pepper aroma. The palate is flat and lacking complexity. Very simple. Not my jam.

    Disappointing. Wasn’t expecting to be blown away, but I expected it to be better than this. This agave Tepextate mezcal is kind of sour with lots of lemon, green grass, and copper. There is no Tepextate green pepper complexity here, just a faint light grassiness. I tasted a Vago Tepextate after this to sanity check myself – probably a bit unfair but they are in the same price range ($90/bottle). Worlds apart, hence the low rating. Lot TEJ460318.
