The Schtick: This is an Tepeztate distilled by Maestro Antonio Cortes Aragon using Tep harvested in 2019. Distilled in Las Salinas Coatecas, Mihuatlan, the agave was fermented in wooden barrels and distilled twice on copper in 2019. Batch MLA-T1903US. Let’s dive in.
Distiller: Antonio Cortes Aragon
Bottler: La Medida
Brand: La Medida
ABV: 46.41% ABV
Nose: Rainwater, crisp green grass freshly mowed, some bell pepper, snap pea, spinach, jalapeño pepper and chive. It’s the whole veggie aisle.
Taste: Sweet and rich here, tons of vanilla cream, agave syrup, a hint of nougat, and bell pepper. Almost a 180 from the nose. Some heat but not unreasonable. Some string bean on the back palate. Really crisp.
Finish: Long, peppery, vegetal and sweet. Clay, sprouts, snap pea and honey.
Overall: Wow, this is really interesting. Not my favorite Tep, but the complexity is undeniable.
