Tasting Notes

Distilled by Celso Garcia Cruz, a maverick mezcalero, in Logoche. An equal blend of Madrecuixe, which perhaps has its greatest expression from this terroir in Miahuatlán, and Jabalin one of the unicorn varieties of agave, notorious for its resistance to cultivation, difficulty to distill and extremely tiny yields. Together they create in this special batch that we hand selected, one of the purest and most exceptional mezcals we have ever tasted with an elevated flavor profile that will simply blow you away. Available in very limited quantities. If you are even relatively interested in mezcal, this is what you want to be drinking.

Staff Pick Notes

Neta is slang for truth in Mexico so yes, this is the real deal. The Cruz family made this batch of Madrecuixe and Jabalin exclusively for Astor. The number on the bottle indicates that this batch was a mere 102 bottles. When this is gone, that is all there will ever be. Given all this, the mezcal lives up to the highest expectations. This is a mezcal that comes at you in waves and develops and evolves in the glass, revealing layer upon layer. So yeah, this is a true sipping mezcal that should be savored with patience and attention. The smoke is well integrated and lets the natural earthiness of the agave shine with notes of tropical fruit and straw. With time, the fruit candies give depth and length to the finish that will linger in your mouth and in your imagination for hours if not days.
