About this destilado de agave

Luneta Mexicano from Berta Vasquez is produced in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca. Berta uses wild maguey Mexicano (Agave rhodacantha), which typically take between 8-14 years to mature. The agaves are roasted in an underground pit oven, milled by horse-drawn tahona, fermented in cypress vats, and double distilled in copper.

Luneta

Luneta bottles expressions that are made with a variety of wild and semi-cultivated agaves, in various states by different mezcaleros, each with distinct elaboration techniques yielding individual flavor profiles. Luneta believes that quality, not quantity, is what's worth striving for. They value individuality, the beauty of imperfection that comes with hand made creations, and the people that bring unique perspectives to the world.

Ive had Bertas Mexicano before, but this iteration is different. I feel like this one is all dark and woody. Cedar, oak, pine. Grating finish that tastes pleasant but burns more than it should

Sampling kit (50 mL) w/ ABV of 47.6%.
Nose – Aloe Vera. Powdered sugar on pancakes. Grilled nopal. Orange rind.

Palate – Vanilla frosting. Lime rind. Garden succulent (Yes I ate one, I was curious). Soap bubbles (a lingering soapiness in the finish as well). Overall: Sweet, very green but the smoke is a bit harsh. This one is alright but not mind blowing – I’m not running out to buy a whole bottle (i.e. glad it was a sample).
