Tasting Notes

The mezcals from Aureliano Hernandez have been some of the most consistently excellent in the Rezpiral line. Series 4 brings us perhaps the most special expression yet, stepping outside of the Espadin world to Tobala in this case as well as being the oldest bottling we have seen from him as well from a batch distilled in 2013. This take a little time to open up and as the dust settles, the spirit settles into a subtle but seductive profile of kaffir lime, avocado leaf, green papaya, minerals and pickeled flowers. The texture is lithe and elegant. A solid example of the agave with a little more punch and a better value than most.

Staff Pick Notes

Spirits are too often relegated to the “after dinner” section of an evening. Sure, it’s nice to digest and ruminate over a nice whisky or brandy. Though some spirits aren’t suited for a nightcap as they stir the appetite. Mezcal (in my humble opinion) makes a great aperitif and able partner for foods. This Tobala evokes papaya, passionfruit, limes, candied watermelon, spearmint, and cured meats. If you find yourself salivating already, don’t worry, that’s normal. The palate coats your mouth with malt, cinnamon candy, wood smoked meat, savory spices, and more if you let the drink sit and breathe. You can drink this alone but you’ll soon find yourself ravenous for a feast.
