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.
