About this destilado de agave

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.

This ensamble of Mexicano Verde and Bicuixe was a batch for the June Hotel Swim Club. I believe that the Mexicano Verde used for this batch were 30+ years old and planted by Primitivo’s father. 46.3% ABV

Nose: Chocolate. Orange zest. Wood. Green beans.

Palate: Big chocolate notes. A bit of salt. Those green bean notes. Then more chocolate. A bit of damp vegetation.

Finish: Loads of chocolate. A slight bit of salinity.

Overall: Really tasty for those who like those chocolate notes in their Mexicano. Really desserty profile. Has gotten more desserty with air time in the bottle. A very good mezcal that’s just missing that little something for me that would make it a great mezcal for my palate. A bit more oomph would just push it over the edge. But the chocolately profile with a hint of we vegetation is nice.
