Distilled by Victor and Emanuel Ramos in Miahuatlan on alambiques con refrescaderas, this batch of Mexicano was produced for Mezcal Mal Bien as part of the 2020 Volume 2 of Agave Mixtape.
Bright and crisp on the nose. Celery salt, fresh earth, green onion and a snap of snow pea. Some sweetness, faint salinity, plenty going on.
Rich on the palate. Honey, almond, bite of ash and a hint of minerality. Lovely complexity here, with the green vegetable notes, sweetness and savory smoke balancing nicely.
Long finish, leaning more smoke and savory, with a dash of celery salt and cedar to keep things interesting.
Delightful and complex, the Ramos pair never disappoints.
