This is a tobala alright…definitely has the typical notes for me. Creamy, some tropical fruit at the end. I wish this one was a higher ABV (only complaint). My favorite so far from the Manglar line.

Pretty good Tobalá. Aroma has some earth and minerality with a hint of salt water. Taste is hot at entry, fairly viscous with pepper, light vegetal and even stale cotton candy. Finish is medium short and simple but ok.

45% ABV Lot CM-T-0821 Bottle #666

Nose has a bit of coriander and allspice and a pleasant mustiness. On the palate, a touch of minerality, a bit of toothpaste, orange blossom, rosewater, and a light sweetness. Pretty solid for the ABV. None of the off-smoke flavors I got from some of the other expressions from Casa Manglar. I have come to enjoy the milder and subdued flavors from this brand.

Lot: CM-T-0821 Bottle: #666 45%

Summer melon aromas on the nose of salted watermelon and citrus. Sage leaves, sandalwood, and grilled aromatics – onions, herbs, roasted agave. Sweet and savory nose. Lemongrass, celery hearts. Raw sugar cane and agave nectar.

Sweet, ripe honeydew and cane sugar flavors on the palate. Caramelized onions and grilled vegetables. Floral elements of bee pollen, honeysuckle, or other edible flowers. Almond extract and cinnamon bark. Wood chips, fresh cut ply, and plastic bags of mulch.

Herbaceous bitter finish. A tinge of salinity with a pickled watermelon rind flavor. Grass and hay flavors dominate for a short bit. Lumberyard or garden center after rain. Mushrooms and topsoil.

This is the first bottle that I can recommend to sip. The flavors are very good and that salinity works well here with the fruity melon and citrus. With all of grilled veg and watermelon, it’s a summer cookout in a glass.

Vanilla extract, banana bread, caramel, graham crackers, and the finish is definitely Zack’s Dr. Pepper. This is tasty for the price.

Nose – Cake frosting. Pink Himalayan salt. Half & half cream. Light lilac note.

Palate – Dr. Pepper soda. Vanilla bean. Finish falls a bit flat though. Grassy, bitter aftertaste. Right now, this is $45 in California. Not a bad tobala for an insanely low price. I’d say this is about a 3.25 star mezcal but definitely the value bump being applied here (to 3.5 stars).
