About this mezcal
Macurichos Ancestral Tobala is produced using 100% Maguey Tobala (Agave potatorum) in Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, México. The small harvested agaves are cooked in an earthen oven, milled using a stone tahona mill, fermented in wooden vats, and distilled twice using clay pot stills. This mezcal is herbal with notes of dry soil, thyme, coriander, and a touch of rosemary.
Led by maestro mezcalero Gonzalo Martinez, Mezcal Macurichos is dedicated to the protection of the cultural tradition and the agricultural heritage of agave within the iconic mezcal production community of Santiago Matatlán, Oaxaca, Mexico. The family employs numerous neighbors and is one of the rare distillers the area who still produce using Ancestral methods, including clay pot stills. Gonzalo and his brothers cultivate their own diverse fields of agave – planting from seed and reforesting the diminishing wild agave populations.

Opens with veggie garden. Finishes with flower garden. Not what I was expecting from a tobala. Its well made, but not sure if I would commit to a bottle right now. 3.75/5
Sweet w/ a green, peppery spice. Soft & delicate with solid sweetness throughout. A Unique tobala compared to what I’m used to tasting. A 2oz sample, and I didn’t grab the lot number. Very comparable to the tepeztate, and not sure out of the two I’ve tried, which one I prefer.
