About this mezcal

Mezcal Carreño Tobalá is produced by mezcalero Leonardo Hernandez. Maguey Tobala typically takes 10-15 years to reach maturity for harvest, and yields a sweeter, more delicate floral flavor. The Tobalá piñas are cooked together in an underground pit oven, milled by tahona, open-air fermented in pine vats, and double distilled in copper stills. This mezcal has hints of almond and chive with a floral nose.

Carreño Mezcal

Mezcal Carreño began in 1904 with Don Apolonio Carreño, with mezcal that was made from wild agaves that naturally grew on property. The same land was used to grow sugar cane and sold to the family of the largest rum producers in Mexico. Mezcal Carreño has planted over 30,000 agaves since 2017 and creates additional plots every year. The company supports multiple non-profits both in Oaxaca and Arizona in the US. With family both in Oaxaca and Arizona, Mezcal Carreño has been able to share its culture and passion on both sides of the border.

A delicious expression of Tobala from Carreno! Just a nice fragrant floral nose with a lightly sweet hints on each sip. Nice spice and balance at 46% would have this be a top one in my bar regularly.
