Yuu Baal Tepeztate is made with wild agave Tepeztate that can take up to 35 years to mature. Due to the length of time needed for this agave to grow, its very existence in the near future is very fragile.  This mezcal has sweet herbal notes of wild plants and cooked flowers.  It’s not as spicy as other Tepeztate mezcals, but it is still a very unique experience. This mezcal is made by Isaias Martinez Juan in San Juan del Rio.

    YJ08-16. I had a different batch of this last year and it was a nice typical Tepextate. This batch tastes nothing like that one and I was initially very disappointed. I tried it again with no expectations and I found it tasted a lot more like a Salmiana agave. It has some funk like blue cheese and olives, some syrupy sweetness like maple syrup, and a minty finish. There is a hint of fresh bell pepper, almost like some Tepextate was blended in with the Salmiana. It’s not great, and definitely not worth the price, but it’s interesting.

    Tepeztate is one of my favourites. Lovely nose of flower pollen. Tastes quite savoury, touch of olive, with a long finish.

    Couldn’t put this one down when I first opened it. Has grappa-like qualities with a notes of grape skin, pepper, and wood smoke. Overall it has a unique flavor that I wouldn’t characterize as a typical tepeztate. Regardless its really great stuff and my favorite from the Yuu Baal line.

    Bit of chemical on the nose. Black cherry. Not the typical peppery agave Tepextate mezcal. Sweet finish. 48% but not punchy.

    Batch: Y-108-16, 48% ABV. Initial aroma of clay flower pot and a hint of sandalwood. Dry herbal flavors with hot spice, cara cara orange, and elusive floral notes far-off in the background. This mezcal had an overall dry character I liked at first, then over time turned to an unappealing tar.

    After spending more time with this bottle, tar notes have become prominent. An initial aroma of unglazed clay pot remains, but tar is now evident in the background. Tar again shows up in the smoky finish with prominence. My tar impression is akin to unseasoned (green) mesquite wood smoke, which imparts creosote-like aromatics & flavor.
