About this destilado de agave

Mal Bien Quiote de Alto was produced by Don Isidro Rodriguez Montoya in Rio de Parras, Michoacán. Don Isidro’s used only the quiote of the agave for this special batch, which was released exclusively through Tahona Mercado. Don Isidro is a first generation Mezcalero. After sharing the communal vinata for 14 years, he built his own vinata in 2015, where he currently distills all his agave.

Mal Bien Mezcal

Since 2016, the Mal Bien team has been traveling Mexico, driving off the map and into mountains filled with treacherous roads, police officers of questionable moral character, feral dogs, indigenous languages, narcos, ancient relics, machete wielding protestors, insect based meals, mudslides, blockades, corrupt politicians, and many of the world's kindest, funniest, most brilliant people. In addition to some hard to believe stories, they've connected with a wide variety of traditional producers, whose mezcal is now bottled and exported under the Mal Bien name.

I love the nose on this, so fresh and so clean, notes of candied limes and strawberries. Jonny’s notes are spot on, subtle lactic quality very fruit forward. I get cherry starbursts on this. You won’t be disappointed if you have a pour or two.

Sweet aromas of red Starbursts, watermelon, grapefruit, cherries, clementine, and a bit of soft cheese. The lactose on the nose is very subtle as it’s mostly fruit forward aromas. The palate mostly matches the nose in terms of tasting notes: fruit forward with tropic fruits meeting slight lactic elements and a bit of grilled char flavoring. Really nice balance.
