El Jolgorio Tobala is made from wild agave Tobala, one of the most prized of all agave. Growing wildly in high altitudes, its relatively tiny size yields limited quantities of intensely aromatic Mezcal. Due to its tiny size and long growing period (12-15 yrs) Tobala is increasingly rare. Gregorio Martinez and Valentin Cortes make this delicious spirit with an artistry that is unsurpassed. This Mezcal is very fresh and aromatic with rich heavy fruits on the nose. The taste is of mango and roasted agave and it is pleasantly viscous. ABOUT EL JOLGORIO Mezcal forms an important part of rituals, ceremonies, and festivities in villages in our homeland of southern Mexican state of Oaxaca. These celebrations - also known as Jolgorios - always involve mezcal, a drink that spans cultures and bonds families. Fifteen unique El Jolgorio Mezcals are made from different species and varieties of wild-harvested and semi-cultivated agaves by master distillers in remote villages in the Central Valleys region of Oaxaca. Each El Jolgorio label signifies a different agave variety, with each tiny batch released in sequentially numbered editions. Due to the scarcity of wild agaves and a commitment to sustainability, the batches rotate, meaning each new edition might be produced from different regional producers within the tightly-knit collective. Every label bears the name of the distiller, village, age of agave at harvest, and number of bottles, to connect the drinker with the place of origin and the families behind the spirit.View all products by El JolgorioCalifornia Residents: Click here for Proposition 65 WARNING

While I definitely enjoyed this mezcal it is not quite as good as I was hoping. It is still very smooth, deep and quite drinkable!
