With hints of mint and flowers, this Tobala is a jewel in our Mezcal line. Brazen with smoke and butter, this Tobala is smooth as a fine cognac. Tobalá is the most coveted in all agave. It is a small, difficult to cultivate agave, and has very distinct flavor characteristics. There are many references to the prized Tobalá in Oaxacan culture. The agave ranch is located in Oaxaca, Mexico off the super highway at marker 189 (approximately 10 minutes south of the City of Nochixtlan) and 35 minutes North of the City of Oaxaca. The agave ranch has over 50,000 espadin agave plants growing which account for five separate crops. In addition to the espadin agave, approximately 1,000 tobala plants grow today, creating Sacacuento Tobala.
