About this destilado de agave

Luneta Tobala from Angelica Garcia Vazquez is produced in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca. Maestra mezcalera Angelica Garcia Vazquez distills her spirits at the same palenque as her mother-in-law, Berta Vazquez. She roasts her agaves in an underground earthen oven with mesquite and oak, mills them with a tahona, ferments them in cypress wood vats, and distills them twice in small copper pot stills.

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.

I got less smoke than Zack, but otherwise, somewhat similar experience. The lactic cheesiness is there, but there is also some minerality to it as well. Its strange.

Sampling kit (50 mL) w/ ABV of 49.2%.
Nose – Very lactic – sweet but a tad sour.

Palate – Identical as the nose – sweet cream with a bit of sourness to it. Medium viscosity which dissipates quite quickly (i.e. thins out fast, doesn’t hold the thickness). Definitely not hot, sips easy at 49%. The smoke comes heavy in the finish – like a burnt processed cheddar and over-charred creme brule. This is interesting, I’ve had worse Tobalas but this just doesn’t quite piece it all together.
