Del Maguey White Blend Mezcal Tobala

External Review by NapaCabs.com:

It takes about eight Tobala pinas (hearts) to equal one pina from either of the more commonly propagated and cultivated Magueys. Whenever one mentions Tobala in a smaller village, the peoples eyes light up and a broad smile covers their face

This single village mezcal has a sweet, fruity nose with a mango and cinnamon taste and as smooth as silk.

Duub-Ba-La is the ancient Zapotec phrase describing this most rare mezcal made from the wild mountain maguey. Duub means maguey plant and Ba-la means house, therefore shade hence - the plant that grows in the shade. This maguey is found growing naturally only in the highest altitude canyons, growing in the shade of oak trees like truffles.

It takes about eight Tobala pinas (hearts) to equal one pina from either of the more commonly propagated and cultivated Magueys.

Our Tobala has a sweet, fruity nose, with a mango and cinnamon taste and long, extra smooth finish. The pueblo elevation is around 8,200 fe
