About this mezcal

Viejo Indecente Ensamble is a blend of maguey Madrecuishe and maguey Espadin. This mezcal has a very soft texture and taste. It’s herbal and green on the nose with a refined taste of green grass and smoke. Both varieties of agave in this Ensamble are cooked together before being fermented montezuma wood tanks.

Viejo Indecente Mezcal

Mezcal Viejo Indecente is produced in the small community of San Isidro Guishe, within the district of Miahuatlán, in Oaxaca. Jose Lucas, a third generation mezcalero, currently oversees the family-run operation, where he shares the knowledge gleaned from his years of experience with his eleven children.

Don Jose’s son Mario is a builder and traveled through villages in Zacatecas, Jalisco, and San Luis Potosi where steaming is traditional. Mario built his own above-ground oven fueled by natural gas. This production method helps combat deforestation. Steaming also efficiently uses the entire plant because burnt or charred pieces do not need to be removed. Not all of their releases are steamed however. Once a year, the family roasts a batch of Tobala and a batch of Tepextate in their traditional earthen pit.

A refined sipper with layers of flavors. This is a tasty ensamble worth seeking out. Batch 15-M 2015, Bottle 0411.

No smoke indeed, the nearly sulphourous notes of the madrecuishe seem to shine through in heavy tones of horseradish, with grassy, cherries, vanilla, and toasted coconut filling out a more classic profile. The mouthfeel is viscous, the proof is in control, with great sweetness on the palate fading into white pepper, minerality, cilantro on the overall pleasant finish. The horseradish slightly overpowers. Fascinating bottle, very worthwhile! Might be a 3.5/5.

Perfumes of fruit and lavender. Very nice aromas. Notes of green apple, orange, plum, and cream. This is a bit salty. Complex and tasty. I wish this was more widely available.

Really nice ensamble from a brand I had never tried until now. The madrecuishe flavors are bright and well-defined, fruity with a velvet spiciness. It finishes with a nice kick from the espadin that doesn’t linger. Can’t recall another ensamble like this but I will now be on the lookout because the madrecuishe and espadin compliment each other nicely. Very enjoyable and well-priced. I enjoyed batch 15-M from 2015 more than Batch 19/18-EN3.
