TEPEZTATE LOT 2 Octavio Jiménez Méndez This Tepeztate mezcal comes from multiple batches of the rare agave, which likes to root in rocks and grow off mountainsides. Tepeztate agave age anywhere between 15 to 30 years before harvesting and typically require a third distillation due to its lower sugar content.

Bold and complex, the tepeztate’s heavier body relays its intense flavors. High smoke and minerality coat the palate and open to kippery undertones. Slate and oil close out this expressive mezcal.

    This is a really nice tepextate. It’s just shy of 5 stars for me. There are incredible green pepper notes on the nose. The plant is displayed beautifully in this mezcal. The spirit itself is incredibly thin, almost watery yet a bit dry which is interesting considering the mezcal is 48% ABV. I get delicious notes of mint, tobacco, green peppers, and tangerine. El Buho calls this a special release so try it while you can. Lot 1.

    Lot 001/TPX. Smells awesome! Lots of aromas of fresh green peppers and asparagus. This is sugary and sweet with notes of cooked Agave and freshly ground pepper. The flavor is a bit thin, but delicious. It’s worth having one of these around the house.

    I’ll wish we had half stars cause I’d add one as this is just that close to perfection. Lot 001/TPX Big beautiful herbal nose with with bell pepper/black pepper and fresh mown grass. crystal clear and smooth with a perfect aftertaste that sits on your palate like butter and just a tiny hint of mineral. You’d never guess that it was 48%
    This is a perfect compliment to food..

    All about the green pepper. Nose and initial hit in the palate is Jalapeno forward. Finish is sweet and still peppery. All in a great way.
