About this destilado de agave

NETA Jabalín, Coyote, Madrecuixe, and Tepextate from Miguel Osorio is a predominately wild-harvested field blend combining nearly equal parts Jabalín, Coyote, Madrecuixe, and Tepextate.

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.

Nose: Cinnamon and cumin. Lots of minerality. Smells like wet stone in a creek.I detect a hint of some acidity. Something like a particularly tart kiwi. There’s something on the nose that reminds me of grape leaves in lebanese food. A nutty note also jumps out. Cashew maybe. Really fun to smell a lot ofthings here.

Palate: Good sweetness and cinammon up front. Then some sweet ripe banana arrives.A dank moss note comes in after this sweet entry.Then lots of acidity that wasn’t present on the nose. This is very interesting. Kind of like tart red grapes. This is kind of a wacky profile yet, I dig it a lot.Mouthfeel is good too. Not gripping but it wears its proof well.

Finish: The grape leaves and cinammon meld on the finish. That cashew is there too. Medium-long to long length. The minerality lingers long at least, even after other flavors fade.

Overall: This is an oddball profile. If someone got the impression that Neta bottles a lot of clean and pretty distillate (which they do), then I’d pour this as a counterpoint. It’s not that it’s not clean so much as the profile brings a lot of interesting notes to the table that you don’t find often. The complexity is there even though it doesn’t feel entirely cohesive.It doesn’t rise to the highs of Neta’s best batches, but it’s just fun and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every pour of it.
