Viejo Indecente is produced by the Lucas family overseen by 3rd generation distiller Jose Lucas in San Isidro Guishe, Miahuatlán in southern central Oaxaca. It's made from a blend of fair-trade Madrecuishe and Espadín grown without the use of pesticides, harvested at about 15 and 8 years respectively. Both species are roasted together in batches in steam-fueled (to reduce the need for lumber and avoid charring) clay ovens and twice distilled. it is bottled unaged.

Tasting Notes

"This medium weight, somewhat viscous mezcal has a rich backbone of vanilla and milk chocolate. Then a rush of hot spice, green pepper, grapefruit and lime zest explode excitedly on the palate. The finish is quite hot and spicy with a lingering bitterness and only a slight hint of smoke. "
