About this mezcal

Tosba Warash is made with wild agave Warash, which is endemic to Sierra Norte, Oaxaca. Though the agave is known to grow in this region, this release from Tosba is the first mezcal made from Warash to become commercially available. As of September 2018, this agave had not been classified by the Consejo Regulador del Mezcal (CRM) and biologists from the CRM have reportedly noted that this agave is not within the CRM catalog, which is why A. sp (Warash) is printed on the label of this mezcal.

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.

Smells like fermenting pineapple, mango, and papaya. This smells more like a brandy its so fruity. The palate has grilled fruits like charred pineapple, stewed apples, cider, apple sauce with cinnamon, and baked summer squash. This is fabulous.

Lot 23. A new agave to add to my list! Exciting! It’s up to 85 now! I hope some ethnobotanist figures out which agaves are true separate species, sub-species, or just different regional names for the same thing. Anyways, when I tasted this I thought it was very similar to Derrumbes San Luis Potosí. Very complex, funky, vegetal. I kept thinking of a Parmesan cheese omelet with some fresh green bell pepper. I wonder if Warash is similar to Salmiana? I prefer the Derrumbes however.

probably 4.5. tropical fruit on the nose is a little funkier and drier on the palate. pretty crazy this isnt a pechuga based on how intense the fruit presence is. reminded me a bit of a softer, more mineral forward herencia de sanchez ponche de frutas. very nice and clean. almost no smoke to be found here.

Tried this at Madre Mezcaleria in Brooklyn. Dried fruit. As the description says, there is definitely some grilled pineapple here. Reminds me a bit of fruity agave Tobala mezcals. Really enjoying everything from Tosba. Lot 23? Bottle 80.
