About this mezcal

El Mero Mero Tobala is made with maguey Tobala that is crushed by tahona, fermented in Encino Oak tubs, and distilled in copper. The arid region of San Dionisio Ocotopec, where this mezcal is made, is known for producing agave with high sugar content, which can come through in the flavor and complexity of the mezcal. The limestone-rich soil of this region can be harsh on the maguey Tobala, which take 12-15 years to reach maturity in this area. Due to the long maturation times, only small batches of 150-200 bottles of Tobala can be made at once.

El Mero Mero Mezcal

El Mero Mero considers itself "The Mezcalero's Mezcal" and began operations in 2011. All production is overseen by mezcalero Justino Garcia Cruz. The bottle label is designed by Carlos Zerpa, one of the most important Latin American contemporary artists. Senor Cruz and the surrounding mezcaleros are starting to slowly and carefully cultivate agave Tobala and Tepextate in order to develop more sustainable production practices.

the tep of this brand was earthy but this tobala was VERY earthy (in a great way)!there is nothing artificial about this mezcal.the nose is like being in a greenhouse.the entry is soft with reserved sweetness.its so delicious without having to be sugary.flavors open with produce and mineral and the earth goes all the way to a lingering slight black pepper finish.i think this is a great example of how a natural mezcal should taste.i cant help but think that the flavor will only deepen and improve with this fresh bottle.very fond of this brand and the price is a steal!
