One of the best tobalas ive ever had. A little bit of everything with this one. Trail mix type of finish. Mouthfeel/heft is perfect. 4.75/5
Very drinkable, smooth, oily, flavorful
A very approachable tobala that is easy to drink. I haven’t had any recently and would have reviewed sooner, but this was added to the site after I finished off the last bottle. I do have another new one on the shelf, and with so many excellent mezcals to buy and try, that does not happen at the three star level.
