About this mezcal

Tosba Tobala has a sweet and fruity nose. Tobala in this region is seasonal and limited. It is in the Tosba mission to protect nature by not over harvesting the Tobala and they have nurseries in place to reproduce and cultivate their own agave.  The Tobala is a much smaller agave than the Espadin and it provides extremely diverse flavors in different regions.

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.

Lot 22. Bottle 5/177. 47.97% ABV. Fruity big green apple aromas. Tastes of green apple, cinnamon, apple sauce, green grapes, unripe watermelon, salt, and vanilla finish. Medium body with a bit of heat.

Soft vegetal on the nose. Vicious mouthfeel which is quite consistent across the Tosba lineup. The vegetal and floral tobala notes aren’t strong, they remain subtle among notes of grape, salt, ash, and apple. Smooth finish with lingering smoke.

2019 Update. Tried lot 22 and really enjoy it. Lots of fruit, guava, and roasted pineapple. Delicious.
