No other agave offers the variety of aromas and flavors as the Tobalá — “the king of mezcales” — a wild plant that grows in the highlands, often on extremely rugged mountainsides and rocky cliffs. Not only is foraging for the Tobalá a challenge, but its smaller size means a significantly larger number of plants are needed to produce this delicious mezcal. With its instantly recognizable aroma, the Tobalá is explosive across the palate — enriched with sweet floral and herbaceous flavors — and its sensations resonate with a hint of numbness, thanks to its long finish. One kiss, and you’ll quickly understand why this small-batch spirit is so special. Because it’s so rare, mezcal lovers often keep a bottle of Tobalá tucked away for special occasions. Enjoy sparingly!
