Koch Tobala Mezcal, 750ML

Koch Tobala is made with wild agave Tobala. The agave Tobala is considered the king agave. It is very small, and a large amount of agave pinas are needed to make a single batch of mezcal. The Tobala is notably complex in taste and mouthfeel. Koch Tobala is harvested after 9 years of growth. It is made by Pedro Hernandez in San Baltazar. It is a subtle mezcal with floral tones and a great herbal permanence on the palate.
