About this mezcal
Palenqueros Tobala comes from Don Baltazar Cruz Gomez in San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca. Don Balta has been producing for many years and his mezcals have been featured and highly prized for some time. This mezcal has aromas of lime, salt, pepper, and red fruits like raspberry and strawberry. The palate is full of fruit like pineapple and banana, mixing with tobacco and floral notes.
Palenqueros Mezcal is marketed as Single Palenque mezcal, meaning that it’s produced by a single mezcalero at a single distilling facility. The brand is a collaboration project between Tradición Chagoya, which owns and operates other mezcal brands like Donaji and Los Cuerudos, and Velier Italia, an Italian spirits company.

BTC001. This is awesome. Extra awesome considering the price point. Almost everything I would want in a tobala. Vanilla and melon on the nose. Creamy, sweet stone fruits on the palate. Delicate, quick finish with zero heat
Lote BTC001 superb tobala, strong floral agave notes with a strange fruit overtone and savoury finish
Baltazar Cruz, Tobala. In Paso Robles at Taste. Strong mineral rich smokiness. Much earthier than other Tobala mezcals I’ve tried so far. Bread like flavor. Tasty, but unusual. A little light fruit flavor comes out after a minute.
This is quite a value, $75 for Tobalá that is well above average, what can go wrong? Light Smokey cantaloupe honeydew on the nose, followed rapidly by Piloncillo/Vanilla on the palate and a mild flavorful heat finish. Superb!
Charred candied fruit. Overall sweet and enjoyable. No heat. Slight chemical finish. A good expression of agave Tobala that new mezcal fans will love. This was $6 for 1.5 oz during a happy hour which is an incredible value. Batch BCTO01.
Batch BCTO01. 1,159 bottles. Aromas of light flowers, vanilla pudding, and cleaning agents. Delicate palate but with a sharp edge. Notes of candied vegetables and a bit of burnt cream. Balanced but with a random sharpness here and there.
