A full pour at their location in El Centro, Oaxaca City
Paired w/ crispy tortillas, salsas and a 5 Mole tasting and fried Plátanos
Peppery, lightly toasty and fruity. Smooth smokiness. A great, full flavored but easy drinkin’ Mezcal!
Nose: sour apples, probably the most sour mezcal I’ve smelled
Palette: sweet and sour, more sour than sweet, minerally and savory, mild nutty hint in the back of my throat, toasted fruits aftertaste, pleasant heat, actually burns quite a bit but I don’t mind it due to balance and flavor. Very nice tobala. So much better than their espadin.
