Very promising intense Tepextate pepper aromas. This is my kinda Tep! Reminds me of an old batch from Reyna Sanchez. It’s not overly perfumed or complex like certain Tepeztate mezcales which I love, but it is super raw and organic. Ashy minerals and burnt sugar. Toned down Altoids. 04.20.JV.TX batch. 200 liters.

Nose – Big, fresh grassiness like you’ve taken a weed wacker to an overgrown lawn a foot high (OK, so you really let the chores go).

Palate – Initial sweetness like letting a few sugar crystals melt on your tongue. Grilled and charred poblano peppers. Aftershave gel. Campfire ash. A very, very rich Tepeztate (after about 2 oz in one sitting I could see if being a bit too much).

Distractingly musty. Almost to the point of being off-putting. Like drinking a cologne made from an Army Surplus store. Mothballs (taste or smell? Ive never tasted them), heme, geueze like funk, blue cheese. Maybe others will like the profile, but for a Tep, this is out there
