LOT: 003-TPZ
Nose – Very vegetal aromas! Scallions. Cocktail onions. Watermelon rind.

Palate – A sweet, fruity turn to start (versus the veggie heavy nose). Dried tropical fruit – papaya and pineapple. Green pepper vegetal note. Oak-ember ash. These flavors BOOM in an extended finish. Not as hot as advertised, to me it tastes around 49-50% heat wise but big, clean flavors overall. I really like this Tepeztate!

Lot 002-TPZ at 52%!! Really nice aromas of cinnamon, allspice, and black pepper. The palate follows with heavy pepper notes upfront and fruity mid-palate notes of grilled pineapple and watermelon. There’s a grilled vegetable element mid-palate as well, perhaps grilled green peppers. This is balanced and dry. Really enjoying this Tep!

I really enjoy this Tepeztate. Nice sweetness to start with nice fruitiness followed by fresh herbs and fresh cut grass. The fruitiness and grassy / herbal flavors blend together for a.nice treat. Well done.

A robust Tepeztate at 52% ABV! I’m digging it. There is a lot of sweet fruit mid-palate. I get apples and melons. The finish leaves a bit of a tingling in your mouth. Lot 002-TPZ.

First off, I want to say this mezcal scores 4.25-4.5/5.
It took a few weeks to blow off some of the 52% alcohol.
It’s peppery, eucalyptusy and savoury. Great sipper. Almost perfect dryness level. The expression of the tepextate agave is lovely. Highly recommend trying this if you see it.
