Proof66 Notes

Monte Alban is named for a mountaintop settlement in Jalisco, Mexico known for its agave plants, both cultivated and wild.

Sazerac is noted as the importer for Monte Alban but they currently acknowledge it as a mezcal label rather than tequila (as of September, 2011).

The 2011 Beverage Testing Institute noted "fuel-like minerality" on the finish.

Just writing a review for this drink because, after myriad Google searches, after perusing every liquor review site... I really couldn't find anything about this. It seems strange, really. It's $9.99 for a bottle, has a $5.00 mail in rebate, is 100% agave, and comes in a seriously fancy bottle (one of my favorites, actually). I tried drinking it, and it actually tastes really good. Honestly, the only other tequila I've had is Cuervo, which I hated. But, if you want at least SOMEONE'S perspective, my friends and I all tried sips of this stuff, and everyone thought it was quite decent. Smooth and mellow, with a peppery bite at the end that never grows acrid. This was almost literally the cheapest tequila at the liquor store, and for it to possess such qualities AND taste decent enough to drink sober is quite a feat.
