About this mezcal

Tosba Espadin is made with ten year old agave plants.  This Mezcal has a light nose with a long-lasting citrus and fruitiness on the tongue. There is a subtle flavor of smoke that is the result of the wood fired roasting of the agave hearts. The flavor of Espadin transports you to a tropical enviroment. It is good to enjoy neat, though it also makes a great cocktail.

Tosba Mezcal

Mezcal Tosba is a microbusiness founded by two cousins from San Cristóbal Lachirioag, Oaxaca, Mexico. As migrants living in Silicon Valley, California in 1999, they were inspired and influenced by the entrepreneurialism that surrounded them. Concerned by the increasing migration from their home region of Cajonos-Villa Alta in the Sierra Juárez mountains, they decided to form a business that would rescue the disappearing mezcal production and bring economic opportunity to the area. Mezcal Tosba is created by using traditional, and what is now called sustainable, agricultural methods of harvesting and distillation passed down by generations of farmers and mezcaleros from the region of Cajonos-Villa Alta of the Sierra Juárez in the state of Oaxaca, Mexico.

Sweet citrus nose – kumquats, with a light and pleasant roast. Cooked agave, faint notes of anise and pepper. Easy finish that does linger. Really enjoyable and sessionable. Lot 18.

Lot 08. A very pleasant, but also rather light espadín. Sweet and well-balanced but lacking a bit of complexity. Would perhaps benefit from a higher ABV. Still, a well-made, enjoyable mezcal.

Full-bodied, bright, and robust. Lots of character on this one. Jumps at your nose and has a great viscous and oily mouth feel. I got cooked agave, fruit, citrus, mint, smoke, and a touch of olive-oil brine. Lot 32 sipped with one of the brand owners at Plaza Santo Domingo in Oaxaca. Does it get any better than that? OK….maybe if we were at their palenque in the mountains 🙂

Lot 20. A complex and delicious espadin – some funk, like overripe fruit, on the nose. Sweet and citrusy with lemon, wood, and camphor flavors. Light smoke. Fantastic to sip neat.

Lot 005. Light and fruity aromas. Notes of charred fruit. I’m a big fan of this. It’s a really nice, light Espadin. Very easy to drink!

Of the dozen mezcals I’ve tried this is a favorite. It’s mildly smoky and deliciously sweet. Generally I enjoy the smokier mezcals. However, every sip of this will only make you want to take another.

Light smoke on the nose. Oily on the palate. There is agave sweetness, banana, and citrus. Very enjoyable mezcal served neat. Lot 005.
