About this mezcal

Fósforo Tobalá is produced by mezcalero Aarón Alva Sánchez San Nicolás Huajuapan, Puebla using cultivated Maguey Tobalá which grows for 8-15 years. The harvested plants are cooked underground for 5-8 days, shredded, and then naturally fermented for 10-14 days in open-air wooden vats. The pulp and liquid are then double-distilled in copper pots. This Tobalá is bottled at 45% ABV.

Fósforo Mezcal

Fósforo Mezcal is another celebrity mezcal from Mad Money’s Jim Cramer. He spent nearly three decades savoring some of Scotland’s finest whiskies which led to a fascination with mezcal. Since the mid-2000s, Jim has tasted well over 200 different expressions from around Mexico and was always searching for the perfect mezcal. Lisa Detwiler, Jim’s wife, set out to find mezcal greatness and develop a brand that would echo Jim’s quest for perfection. In late 2018, after having visited a number of producers, Lisa and Jim met mezcalero Aarón Alva Sánchez and Mariana Hernández. After spending time in the community, seeing the agave fields and tasting the exceptional liquid, they knew that they had found something special.

I don’t have the production date or details of the bottle, BUT the company is almost 1 year old at the time of this review.
Tobala and I are not friends, but someone needs to taste new products coming to the market. Samples are from a disposable hard plastic cup; nose has a slight funk and muted. The palate opens up and blooms in the mouth. Yes, of course agave, but crisp, fresh, green apple goes into a long finish that stays with you. Wow, reminds me of Mal Bien Alto or Leyenda Verde. Hey, Tobala and I could be friends afterall.
