Steeped in tradition and handcrafted by Mezcalero Victor Ramos, Mal Bien Arroqueno Ramos Mezcal is an artisanal expression that reflects the richness of Oaxaca's terroir and the mastery of generations-old distillation techniques. This mezcal is produced from the Arroqueno agave, which is known for its large size and extended maturation period—often reaching up to 20 years.
On the nose, this mezcal immediately introduces itself with profound earthy aromas intertwined with inviting smokiness. Nuances of leather and green olives are complemented by softer floral scents, adding layers of complexity that beckon further exploration.
Upon tasting, the palate is met with an engaging blend of savory and mineral elements. Distinct flavors of roasted agave, wet limestone, and charred oak harmonize effortlessly, while subtle notes of white pepper and dried herbs add a dash of vivacity. The unyielding depth and complexity encapsulate the true essence of artisanal mezcal making.
The finish is captivatingly long and warming, leaving behind hints of anise and cracked black pepper that fade into a soft, smoky echo. It's a journey through the diverse landscapes of Oaxaca, each sip offering a new layer of intricate flavors and aromatic surprises.
