Staff Pick Notes

"Madurado en vidrio" or "rested in glass" is a practice used in agave spirits production to assist with mellowing out a spirit's profile and allowing the elements to better come together. Victor and Emanuel Ramos use this technique masterfully with this batch of Tepextate. Resting in glass for 3 years before it was finally bottled for Mal Bien's series of batches, this takes the nuanced and complex character of their style and refines it even more so. You get all the rock candy, lush tropical and orchard fruit, white pepper, and resinous elements while bringing forth immense florality to the nose, while freshness just comes in waves on the palate. No rough edges, no overt smokiness, this blows the perceptions of mezcal and agave spirits for something breathtaking and elegant in only a way Victor and Emanuel Ramos can express.
