This is the best bottle RC makes. It has that wow factor. Reminds me of “special” cookies. One of the best Jabali bottles out, worth a taste.
Edition 1. This mezcal is really special, nothing else is like this. The smell is of lemon and limes. There is a taste of pickle juice and clementines. If you see it try it! 5 stars.
12/29/2018. Edition 2 bottle 34/150 Revising this review. I’ve own 2 bottles of this, it’s become one of my favorites. Different than Bach 1 it has earthy notes but also sweet I taste some grape spree candy. Nutty!
I’m a big fan of karwinskiis so this was a treat. Vegetal, minerally and minty. It’s really nice and worth a try.
This is incredible. I have a bottle of Felipe Cortes’ Madrecuixe and this ensamble is taking it to another level. Strong taste and smell of blueberries. Taste like grape PEZ. Definitely worth trying. I’ve never had a second version of this. I’ll wish
Lot PPD-003. Bottle 1374/2160. One of the best ensambles I’ve ever had. You can taste some of the flavors of Don Beto’s Dobadan from Marca Negra but with more complexity. I did some hunting for this bottle in Oaxaca and didn’t find it. It’s one of my white whales.
Lot DS001-ECT from Sept 2017. Bottle 48/1858.
I had been hearing about the field blends from Rey Campero and was excited to try this. It’s sour on the nose. It is really balanced between the Tepeze, Espadin and cuishe taste. Has a little heat on it, as campero’s do. Very enjoyable.
Lote MCJO/1804 from 2018.
3.5. Taste like lemon drops, has a buttery feel. Tasty espadin for the price.
4.5 stars. MJ320-15. Another one of Beto Ortiz’s greats. This one made me want to try everything I could from Beto.
Bought a 250mg bottle of this in the main market in Oaxaca City. May 2017. Reviewing after after having the bottle open for 5 months. Maybe my favorite Tepeztate, maybe because of the clay. Pretty light, notes of apples and pears. Hearing the price tag on Lalocura in the states is very high. Try to find his stuff if you find yourself in Oaxaca.
D5015-E, May 2015, 53.9%, Ramiro Sanchez, Romulo’s father. This was a special release to Alamo Liquors in San Antonio. Very flavorful espadin. When I first opened it, it was a bit hot but has since simmered down really nicely. I prefer this to Romulo’s version.
Really enjoyable arroqueno by Renia Sanchez. Very approachable. You can taste the soil that she lives on. Comforting.
Smells delicious. This is bright and floral. Tangerine and lavender. A dry finish.
RMT-04, 2016, 51.6%, Don Lorenzo. Reviewing this after opening the bottle in April 2017. A beautiful Tobala, much softer than when I opened it. Taste of Banana, orange, clay finish. Looking forward to trying Edgar’s version some day.
Luckily got the last bottle Moreno’s liquors in Chicago had. Taste like sour patch kids with a kick of cayenne pepper. I need to hide this in the back.
I love anything by Felipe Cortés and this one only makes me like him more. Super floral and juicy, I love it.
A combination of two of my favorite varietals. Nothing else like this out, that I know of. Taste Peppery on the front with citrus-sour on the back.
Lot A-23-T-16 Aqullino.
Sugar cane and green peppers on the front and jalapeno heat on the back.
12/29/18. 80% Tepeztate 20% Espadin blend 4.5 I liked it more than the 100% Tepeztate bottle. Aqullino knows what he’s doing, blending in a small percentage of espadin into some of his wild agave bottles, like he did with his Mexicano in 2014. Upper echelon Tepeztate.
9/3/22. November 2018 bottle. Incredible. Spicy fruity bomb with greens.
Tepeztate is Aqullino’s best version of mezcal imo. Looking forward to trying the sons version.
Tropical kiwi. Minty goodness. Taste of berries.
Sour mash smell. Green apple tart. Bright!
Tastes of fresh berries. Clay lovers will appreciate this.
