About this mezcal
Koch Tobala is made with wild maguey Tobala. The maguey Tobala is very small, and a large amount of agave pinas are needed to make a single batch of mezcal. The Tobala is notably complex in taste and mouthfeel. Koch Tobala is harvested after 9 years of growth. It is made by Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar. It is a subtle mezcal with floral tones and a great herbal permanence on the palate.
Carlos Moreno’s family has been linked to mezcal since the beginning of the 20th century. In 2009, Carlos resumed the family tradition and teamed up with 5th generation maestro mezcalero Pedro Hernandez to create Koch El Mezcal de Oaxaca, with the goal of preserving and promoting mezcal culture. After 10 years of business, they’ve now integrated more than 15 communities and 50 producing families into their collective. Each batch will vary, so check your bottle for details.

It is a subtle mezcal with floral tones and just a slight smoke. Rich, fruity and absolutely delicious. Not one to be missed.
this is a good mezcal.this brand is high quality.it is gentle and sweet and easy to drink.i rate it at three and a half stars.it would get 4 if the tobala profile was stronger.the earthy tobala is there but not very strong.the price was $120 and i expected more.very little smoke but a mild and pleasant taste.
