  • Intro:

    Distilled by Felipe and Ageo Cortes for Mal Bien, this bottling of Tepextate agave comes to us from a new project - Agave Mixtape, from their first Batch 001 mixtape box. As a huge Tepextate fan, and an even greater fan of Cortes' work, this is an exciting bottling, and I'm looking forward to diving in. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Bright, crisp jalapeno peppers. Rain water, vinegar, pickled onion, sweet cream and lime zest. Bright, vegetal, peppery, and loaded with complexity.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the pepper. Quite a lot of pepper, soap stone, cream. Peppery, honey, green bean and almost a cherry fruit. Papaya, ash and crisp jalapeno. Quite the complexity, and extraordinarily fresh and "tep-like".

  • Finish:

    Long, vegetal, rich and peppery. Big blast of fresh rainwater, bell pepper, and sweetness.

  • Overall:

    Whew - so much going on in this expression. The Tepextate character is undeniable and it runs free and unbridled here. So much complexity, vegetation and "freshness". Nice work.
