This mezcal drinks like a wine. Very complex and balanced on the smoke. I had heard there was an issue with a previous batch of the Tepextate, what a shame! Excuse my while I cry tears over what a loss that is. There has since been a new batch release and it is absolutely delightful. The bottle is beautiful, I‚Äôm thinking of making a lamp out of it.
This is my first time trying this brand. Others have told me ‚Äúthe bottles are better than the juice‚Äù. Unfortunately, they are right. This agave Tepextate mezcal is vinegary and sour with a dry finish. The vegetal notes are faint and fleeting. Definitely tastes like a handmade mezcal just maybe too many tails included in the final product. This is a moderately priced Tepextate, but a brand like Gracias a Dios offers much more value at a similar price point.
If you love mezcal, you have to give this a try.
