About this destilado de agave

Maguey Melate Coyote from Victor & Emanuel Ramos was originally released as a 50ml sample in the June/July 2021 Mezcalero of the Month Club. Victor Ramos and his son Emanuel are both very well known throughout Oaxaca. This father-son duo is highly regarded for their work with Agave karwinskii and this Coyote is showcases some more diversity in their production.

Maguey Melate

Maguey Melate was founded on two ideas: 1) Artisanal agave spirits are amazing and should be shared with the world, and 2) The faster-cheaper economy is a harmful force for people, the environment, and now agave spirits.

They believe if mezcal (and agave spirits) can be understood and appreciated at its full potential, people will show their preference for quality artisanal mezcal that is sustainably and fairly sourced. By raising consumer consciousness on the origins of mezcal and educating enthusiasts on matters of quality and character, informed people will be empowered to ensure the future of mezcal. To do this, they're reaching a large audience with an impactful message: KEEP MEZCAL ARTISANAL!

Maguey Melate is perhaps most well-known for their Mezcalero of the Month Club, which delivers artisanal small-batch agave spirits directly to the doors of consumers in the US and Mexico. In addition to the monthly spirits, they offer exclusive content and interviews with producers. Single releases are also available in the Maguey Melate shop.

Batch: RAM-COY-001. Bottle 31.
Sparkling aromatics! Raisins, dark muscovado sugar, champagne cognac, rolling tobacco, and roasted cantaloup. More raisins on the palate, along with apple mint, creamed dark brown sugar, and Pepsi. It finishes with caramel, slate, and teaberry (or the flavor of original Pepto Bismol for those not living on the Atlantic Seaboard). All-around delicious, but it’s that nostalgic blast of teaberry at the very end that really captures my Eastern Pennsylvanian heart.

Doing a side by side with the Ramos’ tequilana, I must say that this comes out on top.
Still has that Ramos “greenness”to it, but this Coyote seems to be more candied and softer than the azul. Earthy with full-mouth complexities and all around deliciousness.

Batch #: RAM-COY-001
Nose – Cigar wrapper. A handful of raisins. Raw brown sugar.

Palate – More raisins. That amazing brown sugar taste when it melts on warm oatmeal. A delicious, sweet front and middle. Incredibly warm the whole way through but by no means hot. Cigar and salted caramel – finish and aftertaste – that goes a long time.

My god, these Ramos fellas are pretty frickin’ good at what they do!

Delicious! Drying tobacco leaves, dark brown sugar, mexican hot chocolate, Thompsons raisins, and pineapple syrup. I really want a full bottle of this one.
