I’m gonna keep picking off new bottles from the Palenqueros series, because they’re priced well and never disappoint. Tobala-tobasiche is one of my favorite combinations of agave, with the characteristic rich vegetal and mineral flavors, and just a light essence of charcoal that doesn’t diminish the honeyed sweetness. I found this on sale for $79, and if I could find it again I might keep a few on hand.

Candied and tobala forward. A matched amount of mango and slightly green pineapple, then yellow cake batter, touches of mint, and minerality. Lots of incensed notes, spicy like cinnamon, some sage for sure. Bright and fun side of these agaves! Just a little hot and thin. JHEN01.

Really good! An agave Tobala mezcal with a grassy/karwinskii finish. The smell brings you to Oaxaca. Proof seems much lower than 49%. Salt, cantaloupe, and dried agave. This is well-priced. Batch JHEN01.
