About this destilado de agave

Lamata Madrecuixe Oaxaca from Sozimo Jarquín is produced in the community of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. Sosimo is quickly becoming a well-known name in the Oaxacan mezcal scene. He works alone and produces a very small amount of mezcal annually.

Lamata

Lamata (formerly named Amormata) is the for-export label of Nacion de Las Verdes Matas, a small unregistered brand started by Luis Loya many years ago. His goal is to share mezcal from Northern Mexico from places that are under-represented in the market. Luis has relationships with producers in Durango, Nuevo Leon, Sonora, Chihuahua, San Luis Potosi and Tamaulipas among others.

The typical lot sizes of Amormata releases range from about 40 liters to 200 liters. The producers will continue to make about the same amount of spirits that they historically have in the past. Therefore, the brand will not bottle much more than a total of three to five thousand liters per year. Amormata is dedicated to promoting the “gusto historico”, the terroir, the liquid culture, and the history that is mezcal to people beyond the borders of the places where it is made.

ABV: 49.5%

Nose: Extremely veggie, vinegary zucchini, slightly sour and lactic, lime, fresh bagged leaves, pickles spears, pine trees

Palate & Finish: While many madrecuixe have wood this is like green briny wood on the shoreline, very tangy brine and citrus, mustard, citrusy grapefruit juice, honey peppers, popsicle stick, sauerkraut, coleslaw, tart kiwi. Finish is more lemon lime and eucalyptus. South Carolina mustard based bbq sauce, slight back pepper on the backend, as it sits it becomes a bit chocolate

More mustardy and briney than I expected. Nose is a bit unique and incredibly vegetal. I can’t stop thinking about that stale vegetal smell of picking up slightly damp leaves in the fall. Good stuff

This review is just an impression of a small pour from a big Lamata tasting. No bottle info. Will update if I try again.

Review #131: lime, smoke, light dark chocolate, grass, peanut butter, peanut brittle, green beans, earthy.

This bottle is a banger! Soo rich in flavors, the mix of chocolate, peanuts, and earthiness nearly overwhelm you with their boldness. This was the first in the tasting, but i left some to come back to for the end after my palate was a bit fried and it was still just as good. This is not one to pass up on.
