Del Maguey Tobala

The Schtick: This is a limited edition release of MX only Del Maguey Tobala. I don’t have a ton of information on it, since it came to me via a friend, in the form of a bottle with a masking tape label. It was never produced in an official US bottling run, so that’s the best of what I have to go off of. Let’s see how it is.

Review #1183 | Mezcal Review #20

Distiller: Don Rogelio Martinez Cruz, Leopoldino Miranda

Bottler: Del Maguey

Brand: Del Maguey


ABV: 46% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet, loaded with brine and light acidity. Effervescent and bright, loaded with pepper and citrus. Really pungent, in a floral, fruity way.

Taste: Sweet, earthy. Rubber, fresh baked dough, sweet and savory vinegar. Light earth, not too chemical forward. Bit of agave stank/funk. The complexity is astounding.

Finish: Short, but complex and incredibly clean. The vinegar and earth blend with confectioners sugar and orange peel, leaving with a quick wisp. Intensely drinkable.

Overall: Big fan of this bottling, from the big hit of citrus on the nose to the stanky palate and incredibly clean finish. Really well done here.

Thanks for reading!
