Too strong on the hot burnt roasting that overpowers too much the Tobala.

NJ-101-17 bottle 058. If such a thing exists, this would be a bargain Tobala. I was a little worried since this line has reposado and anejo and at around 45%, is lower ABV than other lines that only produce joven at 48% – 52%. Not a knockout in terms of complexity, but solid. There is a bit of wood and leather on the nose, the middle is smooth without any huge standout flavors and I get a bit more wood on the finish in the back of the palette. The good news is that the wood flavor is subtle; this mezcal could not carry big smoke or pine.

Yummy mezcal and incredibly inexpensive for a Tobala. Earthy on the nose with notes of vanilla, citrus, and firewood. There is a little heat but not much bite. Give it a try. Batch NJ101-17.

Batch NJ101-17. Really tasty! This is very light and easy to drink while remaining full in flavor and rich. Well balanced on the nose. Aromas of burnt tangerine and a bit of ash. This mezcal has peat on the palate with notes of smoke, thick vanilla, and mesquite. This is definitely worth tasting and the bottles are cheap (relatively)! Try it.

It’s a great Tobalá mezcal, it has fruity and fresh flavor. Although the ABV is high, this mezcal is smooth.
