  • Intro:

    Distilled by Marta and Isaac Garcias in San Lorenzo Albarradas, this expression is distilled twice on copper using 20 year old Tepextate agave. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Extremely fresh and vegetal. Loaded with bell pepper, snap pea, big big vegetable notes. Romaine lettuce, faint pepper and minerality, crisp rainwater and fresh cut leek. Wild and complex.

  • Taste:

    Bright on the palate - quite complex. First taste brings bell pepper, string bean, jalapeno. The longer it rests, the sweeter and more mineral forward it becomes, ending with leek, ash and a touch of crispness.

  • Finish:

    Short finish, but it's delightful and clean.

  • Overall:

    This is an excellent look at a Tep that goes all out in "green" field notes on the palate but brings balance and complexity to the finish, without going too overboard. A masterpiece from Marta and Isaac.
