About this mezcal

Casa Manglar Tobala is produced in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca, México. Wild Agave potatorum agaves are sourced for this release. The agave plants are cooked underground for 4-7 days, milled using a stone tahona, naturally fermented for 3-20 days depending on the ambient temperature. This mezcal is double distilled in 200-700 liter copper pots. This mezcal has notes of cooked agave, chocolate, bananas, and pepper.

Casa Manglar Mezcal

Casa Manglar’s (Mangrove house in Spanish) philosophy is to offer one of the best mezcals, always respecting traditions and being able to share them with everyone. The name is a tribute to the indigenous people living in the area of Sierra de Oaxaca.

All of the mezcals from the brand are produced by two palenques in San Juan del Rio, Oaxaca. They have a production capacity of 12,000 liters per month. Agave is sourced from nearby fields in various stages and also purchased on the open market.

Lot: CM-T-0821
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).
