About this destilado de agave

NETA Bicuixe was distilled by Mezcalero Candido Garcia Cruz in the village of Logoche in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. The maguey Bicuixe found in Miahuatlan are very similar, and perhaps even identical to what is called Tobaziche in parts of the Ejutla valley, the Tobaziche of Santa Catarina Minas, as well as the Cirial from other parts of the Central Valleys.

This 400 liter batch (BCXCAN-1804) from Maestro Mezcalero Candido Garcia Cruz is an expression of the natural elements of the region, the flavors of the plant, and the nuances imparted by its mezcalero and palenque.

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.

Lot No: BCXCAN1804, Btl. 059/240. Cedar & spice and everything nice. Plant flavors come through loud and clear. The finish is a little leathery and tastily long lasting.

A touch hot, but tons of weird citrus slices, marchmallow root, cedar, some nice acidity. Apologies for the short notes! Aromatic, floral, nice clove spices.

Tons of rubber, some rauchbier qualities, a little bacon, and some barnyard funk. Really really musty… like a wet basement. Not diggin it

No batch info.

Whoah, not nearly as funky as I expected. After an intriguing nose, this hits the palate quite gently. Lots of lemon, cream cheese frosting, really effervescent lavender, some pepper and a bit of cedar. Not aggressively sour in the least, and the smoke is off doing something else – not a smoky palate at all.

This is really quite interesting. Drinking blind, I wouldn’t have any idea it is a bicuixe, but I’m a fan. While I think I give the nod to the espadin, this is very good itself.
