Distilled by Simon Apolonio Ramirez, this high altitude Tepextate was distilled on copper. While I'm a lover of Tep already, I was compelled to pick this up on a recent trip to NYC due to the bonkers high elevation of production. Let's see how it is.
Incredibly fruity on the nose. Cotton candy, skittles, rich sugar, pop of acidity. Super enticing.
Crisp and juicy on the palate. Some cabbage, bell pepper, fun cotton candy and raspberry. Light clay and ash, some faint plasticity.
Long finish. Faint smoke here, plenty of fruit and texture to keep it interesting. Faint bell pepper here, some pepper and clay. Nice minerality component.
This very much strays from the typical string bean bomb that many Teps are to me and I love it. Savoring this bottle so I don’t run out.
