About this mezcal

Gracias a Dios Tobala is made with 15-year old Tobalá that is distilled two times. It is vegetal and funky, with rubber notes of smoke and peat; deep and long, nuanced, engaging; smoke rising in strength. It is balanced and complex on the palate, with integration of discreet fruit and spice, and a hint of lime skinlate. It has a vegetal/herbal at fade, with good agave tones and profile; long finish, spicy and deep, minty and slightly tropical.

Gracias a Dios Mezcal

The team behind Gracias a Dios Mezcal opened a mezcalería in Querétaro, México in 2010. After two years of touring around Mexico in search of mezcal, they met mezcalero Oscar Hernández and were impressed by his mezcal. They decided to create a brand with Oscar and make him an equal partner. Oscar learned how to distill from his mother whose nickname is "La Jefa".

Aside from a few special releases, Gracias a Dios is made in Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca. It is 100% artisanal, handmade with piñas from Espadín agave and other varieties, ground and fermented in their own palenque in Santiago Matatlán, and distilled in copper by maestro mezcalero Oscar Hernández Santiago. Their Karwinskii agaves are shredded mechanically, due to the toughness of their fibers, and then tahona-crushed afterwards. All other agave used at this palenque are crushed by horse-drawn tahona only.

Sweet and vegetal on the nose. Tastes hotter than it is but creamy. Immediate sweet on the tongue. Also vegetal in taste but I didn’t get much funk. Slight citrus notes.

Lot 275. Creamy and hot. Pineapples and fresh orange blossoms. Pleasant mezcal lacking complexity. Great price!

Gracias a Dios makes an okay tobalá. It’s perfumed on the nose. Velvet mouth feel. Mineral, fruity, and ash with a slightly metallic yet smooth finish. This is one of the cheapest tobalas you will find in the States. Unfortunately, a really good tobala will cost at least $100 so if you’re looking to save money this is a decent option. My bottles does not appear to have a batch number.

This mezcal is sweet on the nose with strong perfume notes. The taste is vegetal with similar floral notes and slight hints of orange of citrus. This Tobala is at a very low price point. I purchased my bottle for less than half of what I’ve paid for other mezcal made with agave Tobala, making this mezcal a steal!
