Batch IJ.04.21.TB. Big aromas of fresh oranges. This is a citrusy tobala, vegetal as well with a peppery finish. Absolutely worth trying for a different perspective on tobala.

Tobala never seems to produce signature flavors meaning every Tobala mezcal might go in a different direction flavor-wise. This one is incredibly vegetal and quite unique. Drinks a bit soft, no alcohol bite even on the finish. Grey label. Batch IJ.04.21.TB, 100 liters.

Lot IJ.04.22.TB. Aromas of ginger root, spicy jalapeño, vanilla extract, and rose pedals. The palate is soft with notes of strawberry cream, raisins, and some light dry herbs. Really enjoyable and delicate.

Review #37: very spicy florals reminiscent of some gin. Lavender, juniper, jalapeno, green pepper, light sweetness that i couldn’t pick apart.

The gin note threw me off but it doesn’t actually taste like gin, just a similar blend of a bunch of florals and spices. This is unlike most other tobalas that I’ve had. Still somewhat floral, but very vegetal overall. Definitely a unique and very delicious mezcal.
