I love the complexity that this one brings. On the nose I get primer, pear, and an herbal note. For the taste I get a slight peppery tone, more herbal and bell pepper taste, and some slight funky notes. The more I drink this the more I like it.
Salud!

Nose – Typical Tepeztate nose, you can’t miss that this is a tepeztate: green bell pepper, fresh sliced Jalapeno, black pepper, and citrus. Aromas are intense, I could smell this while it sat on the table even before lifting the copita to smell it.

Flavor – as Zack mentioned in his review this is like a rollercoaster, it starts out light and then surprises you with flavor on the mid and back palate. Flavors of roasted peppers and a hint of mint on the finish. If you are a fan of tepeztate mezcals this won’t disappoint.

Good viscosity that coats the mouth well, and a medium to long finish. If you are on the fence this one is worth picking up.

Nose – Charred Anaheim peppers. Grilled nopal cactus. Light powder sugar. A hint of Parmesan cheese.

Palate – A light entry but then big, booming flavors in the middle onward. Pine wood ember. Red bell pepper. Mint leaf. Roasted poblano pepper. Slightly buttery. Grilled corn on the cob. Sea salt. This is like a open-flame, veggie BBQ – a fabulous tepeztate. 👌
