About this destilado de agave

NETA Barril from Wilfredo + Ramon Garcia Sanchez is made with maguey Barril, which in this case most likely refers to an Agave angustifolia. This agave was originally collected in the wild, and the seeds that sprouted the agaves used in this batch were cultivated in Logoche by brothers Ramon and Wilfredo and their mother Margarita.

NETA

NETA is a colloquial word in Mexico that translates to “the real deal” or “the truth”. Since 2012, the brand has worked closely with several small, family producers and a cooperative of twelve palenqueros from the southern valleys and hills of Miahuatlán, Oaxaca. The region has preserved its reputation for producing some of the finest mezcales and agave spirits anywhere in Mexico. The team behind NETA presents a carefully curated selection of extraordinary spirits that would otherwise never be found outside of its place of origin.

A note about NETA labels: The total bottle count written on the front label might be less than the total batch size. Batches may be split between Mexico, Europe, and the US; the handwritten bottle count represents the number of bottles imported into a particular country.

June 2021 batch, 14/78
On the nose I’m pretty blown away by buttery toffee aromas, with some herbal hints of astringency and ash. Very intriguing.
The palate initially offers some vegetal fruitiness of guava, then leather and tobacco. After two seconds you really get into deep, viscous flavours of cocoa butter, roasted coffee beans, kalamata olives, allspice and artichoke. Incredibly oily mouthfeel and lingering aftertaste. I really love this one, and hope that Neta will keep working with these two guys. Try it if you find it!
