Bottle 40/172, Batch # MCTEL20 ABV 45.6 Tasted a 1.5 oz pour at Astrid in Downtown Los Angeles. Juniper on the nose lots of evergreen. Flavors of pine, sweet syrup, minerals. And black pepper. Really well balanced and flavorful. 4.25 stars.
I get cloves, cinnamon, earth, and a bit of mint. Nice mouthfeel, easy drinking with a clean finish.
Batch MC01. Bottle 48/230. Clean aromas of spearmint, vanilla, and menthol. The palate is thick, a bit chalky, and clean. Tastes like freshly cooked agave. Sweet notes of licorice, almonds, and minerals.

Not sure how it’s taken me so long to try this one. Smelled a bit floral, tasted of leafy herbs.
Not otherworldly but very good. Worth seeking out
MC-01. Classic Madrecuixe. Spearmint, fresh green pepper, rosewater, and fennel seed. Just delicious!
This is an elite madrecuixe. Minty, vegetal, wonderful.
Tons of minerality, earth, and wood. Big vegetal karwinskii flavors along with Lemondheads and peppermint. This and the ensamble with Bicuixe are top-notch. Batch MC-01.
