Mostly clean, slightly woodsy nose. Very big initial hits of spearmint which fades into leather and clay. Finish is incredibly long and gets sweeter the longer you wait for the next sip.
Reminds me more of a Mexicano rather than an espadin. A little ethanol and chemical notes on the nose. Explodes with darker flavors in the mouth, clay, minerals, a little smoke. Clean, kind of coppery finish.
Tried completely blind.
Hot on the nose, but not on the pallet. Really like it but struggling to identify the individual flavors, although whatever they are are delicious. Great, lingering finish.
Nice grassy nose. . It’s a good, classic cuixe profile. Sweet grass, oily finish which lingers a good amount of time.. Perfectly drinkable, but nothing really memorable.
Good, but not super memorable. Nice mouth feel. A good initial sweetness, followed by a distinct earthiness which fades quickly. Very easy to drink, a good representation of tepextate
An awesome bottling. Like a pechuga without, but with lots of complexity, but more focused on the meaty/oily side. A great mouth feel, finish, and no burn at all.
A very tasty ensemble. Smells hot on the nose, but is very balanced on the palate. The characteristic Mala idea sweetness is present, but with some citrus and butterscotch flavors.
A decent cuishe. The grassy notes are there, along with what seems to be a sweetness found in all of the Mala idea bottlings.
Sweet green pepper flavors are very pronounced. Caramel finish that seems to linger in a good way. Don’t know the price point for it, but I’d definitely try another bottle.
Alcohol is very pronounced. A little sweetness on the finish, but not much other flavor.
All about the green pepper. Nose and initial hit in the palate is Jalapeno forward. Finish is sweet and still peppery. All in a great way.
nice long pleasant finish. A little hottter. Not as smooth as most tobala.
Very unique. Pineapple sweetness in the nose. Super smooth and light with some nice spice. Finish is heavy on Mango flavors. Delicious
Nose is funky but also has a lot if alcohol smell for 46%. Taste is smooth, but also a little alcohol forward. Finish is long and a little oily, in a good way.
Sweet nose, Sweet and grassy finish. Very smooth and balanced.
Very complex. Nose is a little harsh, but it leads to a spicy and lasting finish. A little medicinal, in a good way.
Sweet aroma and slightly sweet finish. grassy notes and a fairly long lasting finish.
Smoky yet lacking any other qualities. Finish is almost immediate. It’s not unpleasant but also not memorable.
A clean/focused mescal. Very smooth with a smoky hit, followed by a long, slightly citrusy finish.
