Scorpion Mezcal Estate Grown Tobala Silver

Scorpion Mezcal Tobala Silver is produced from 100% Estate Grown Tobala Agave from Tlacolula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The Tobala Agave is artisanal / steam cooked, distilled in a copper pot still, and bottled after distillation.

The Tobala variety of Agave is considered the king of mezcals in Oaxaca, Mexico. Tobala Agave typically only grows wild in the Sierra Madre mountains in southern Mexico. Master Distiller, Douglas French, collected wild seed in 1996 and is growing the wonderful Tobala Agave on his own plantations.

An exceptional Tobala. The initial taste is incredibly round and generous with a totally unexpected level of finesse. It finishes with authority leaving impressions of spice and smoke. This is a marvelous mezcal, one of the few counterpoints to Del Maguey. Not to be overlooked.
