Rambha Mezcal

Rambha Mezcal is the brand from Rosario Ángeles Vásquez. Maestra Rosario has no mezcal producers in her family history. Her decision to make mezcal was completely her own, and came after leaving a career as an English teacher when she decided she preferred being out in nature more than grading papers.

Lot: RAMB202301, 49.3%, Bottle number 164
Destillation date: October 2022

Nose – Musty, rustic and moldy; earthy with a little bit of rot. Wet wood, bananas, cheese, a little funkiness like feet and dried fish, with an over-arching briny sweetness, like ginger.

Palate – A subdued but funky, earthy and vegetal sweetness. Canela, raw sugar, cilantro, mango, and orange marmalade, especially the little bitter pieces of rind.

Finish – The funky sweetness continues; lots of agave present. Dark chocolate-covered raisins, plums, bananas, almonds, and some wood, like when you chew on a toothpick too long.

Really good and interesting flavor! One can appreciate the craft that went into making such a tasty final product. However, after sampling many claypots thus far, I’ve come to the conclusion that the funk and earthiness isn’t my palate. I just wish the flavors and intensity of the Tep would’ve shined a bit more in this.
