About this destilado de agave
Gusto Historico Tepextate de Flor was produced by Victor Ramos in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. This is a unique batch that is only available at Whistler’s in Austin, TX. Maestro Victor’s father, Tio Pablo, used to make small batches of mezcal using magueys that had already gone to flower, which is not common as the majority of the sugars would have already left the maguey at this point in the reproductive cycle. That said, the mezcal produced from these flowered maguey produced a flavor that became a favorite for Tio Pablo. So this batch of Tepextate de Flor from Victor Ramos is an homage to his father.
Gusto Histórico specializes in bringing unique destilados de agave y mezcales tradicionales to the market. The brand was started by one of the co-founders of famed Oaxacan mezcaleria Mezcaloteca, and the Gusto Histórico brand features many of the same producers, with a focus on preserving traditional production methods and practices.

Not your typical Tep! Very clean aromas: white sugar, lemon zest, and onion. The palate has that angularity of really solid Tepextates, with peppery notes, but also these very rich dark fruity undertones like plumes and dark mango. This is deep and robust. We (mostly) finished off the last bottle of this at Whistlers/Tobala Mezcaleria. Incredible batch.
Tried the last few ounces of this batch at Mezcaleria Tobala with Sean. Great Tepeztate expression with some wild notes. Sweet and dark. Wasn’t focused enough to write a proper review but for feeling is that I wish I had a bottle but alas this is the end.
