ABV: 45%

Considered the 'truffle' of the agave world, the Tobala maguey is found growing naturally only in the highest altitude canyons in the shade of oak trees. Its form is different than the maguey Espadin (sword) or maguey Azul (blue). It is smaller and broader leafed. It takes about eight Tobala piñas (agave hearts) to equal one piña from either of the more commonly propagated and cultivated Magueys. Production is limited, being careful to never over harvest the Tobala and allow mother nature to continue a supply. Maestro Mezcalero, Juan Hernández, produces his expression in tiny batches. In this case, around 60 bottles.

Notes from the producers... Powerful in aroma with a deep smoky character including wild herbs and straw. The palate has dairy-like aromas and flavours as well as macadamia and anise notes. 45% Alc./Vol.
