Tasting Notes

This is our first batch from Mario Vasquez, and if this mezcal is any indication, he clearly seems to have taken on his mother Berta's insistence on traditional, natural practices and a purity of quality. Made from Tobala agaves that had each aged for a minimum of 8-9yrs prior to harvest, the spirit is seductively sweet and nectar like on the nose with heady florals, citrus and minerals. The palate is fleshed out and fruity with melons, lime and banana, with a mouth-watering finish.

Staff Pick Notes

Describing flavors in mezcals is a bit like trying to describe the color of the sky. "Smoky" only begins to describe some of the sensations in a well made mezcal. The Rezpiral series mezcals are made in small batches (100 - 400 liters), farmed by sustainable practices to maintain traditions, and outstanding quality all around. Tobala agave is often referred to as "king of mezcal" and known for their complexity. Of course it's also difficult to cultivate. It likes wildly high altitudes, can only grow from seed and takes 12-15 years to reach maturity. But it yields excellent results in the right hands. This Tobala from mezcalero Mario Vazquez has an intensity that builds with notes of charred fruits, citrus rind, pickles, sea salt just to name a few.. An exquisite mezcal in all senses.
