About this mezcal

Pierde Almas Tobala is made from wild maguey Tobala that take 12 years to mature in San Baltazar. Agapito (Leo) Hernandez makes this Mezcal, which displays strong tones of the fresh agave plant. It is sweet with a long-lasting floral pattern.  The aftertaste is also very green and fresh, like the smell of new vegetation after a spring rain.

Pierde Almas Mezcal

Behind each bottle of Pierde Almas is a time-honored recipe kept alive with painstaking care by the family patriarch in each successive generation. Their labels are hand-printed on 100% acid-free, handmade paper derived from fibers that are indigenous to the region and have been in use since pre-Columbian times. With their Wild Agave Reforestation Program, they are actively engaged in the re-forestation of wild species of Agave in those areas where their populations have been depleted. Pierde Almas begins each rainy season by inviting bartenders, chefs, restauranteurs, and journalists to join them for their annual wild Tobalá planting. Due to the artisinal nature of their mezcal, the ABV of each lot may vary slightly.

In May 2018, British multinational alcoholic beverages company Diageo purchased Pierde Almas Mezcal.

Earthy finish very characteristic of this wild agave, very enjoyable. Been drinking this mezcal for a long time, a little bit pricy but definitely a good one.

Light aromas of fresh flowers, marshmallow, and peanuts. The palate is full of ground nuts, tree roots, fall in New England, and pumpkin seeds. Also has hints of mixed herbs, mint, and cumin. This is really enjoyable. I don’t see it often it often, which is unfortunate.

Accurate description written above though has a bite as opposed to “dancing” flavors. Dry and almost perfume notes on the nose. Very floral throughout but not as prounced as other tobalas. Hot aftertaste smooths out without much of a lingering taste. Not my go-to tobalá considering the price.
