Yuu Baal Tepeztate Artisanal Mezcal (750ml)

SKU #1273339

Yuu Baal's wild Tepeztate expression is perhaps one of the most polished top-shelf mezcals we've ever tasted, perfectly balancing the line between classic agave spirit flavor and more exotic notes of earth, spice, and savory. There's a seamless note of black pepper, roasted agave, scorched earth, and sweet agave perfume all the way from front to back. Those searching for elegance, look no further. Yuu Baal's Tepe is cooked in a concave stone oven, milled by stone roller, naturally fermented in oak vats, and double-distilled in copper pots. No longer available in 750ml format, this is your last chance to grab a full-sized bottle and at a huge discount to boot!

Wild Tepeztate often takes 25-30 years to fully mature. If it's harvested too early, there isn't enough sugar to ferment, and the resulting Mezcal is thin and weedy. After generations of Mezcal production, the harvesters of Yuu Baal have a trained eye to ensure they only select the juiciest, sweetest Tepe's on the wild mountain slopes of Oaxaca. Master Mezcalero Isaias Martinez Juan really shows his skills with this batch. It's incredibly sweet on the tip of the tongue, and the back end of savory green notes is huge and complex. It's herbal in all the best ways, and the power of the 48% ABV spirit takes over your entire mouth. The smoke is bigger on the finish than on the nose, and it lasts forever. There is an amazing floral perfume that carries from start to finish. It's a real treat any time I get to drink Tepeztate, and I covet it for the characteristic wild herbal flavors. It's a true rarity to get to drink one that has so much sweetness on the palate as well. Add to that the fact this is under $100 and I'm a happy drinker.
