Rather unique

It's basically a tobala that drinks very soft and clean, almost like a full bodied sake. Very different than any other mezcal I've had and I drink a lot of them. It's not smokey at all and drinks sweeter when you pour it on ice. If you're serious about mezcal, get this one. You'll love its complexity.

A must-buy for Tobala lovers!

This is a more earthy mezcal and the fermentation in rawhide accentuates the flavors of a traditional tobala. Not a lot of smoke on the palate and the claypot distillation gives it a soft mouthfeel. You won't find a lot of mezcals like this. If you like very small batches or mezcals distilled in the old style, this bottle is a must.
