TOBALA - ESPADIN LOT1 Octavio Jiménez Monterroza The Tobala-Espadin ensamble is a favorite of the Jimenez Mendez family and the recipe has been passed down for generations. The small size and wide leaves of the Tobala agave make it one of the easier species to identify.

The round and roasted agave sweetness of the espadin melds perfectly with the tropical fruit and mild salt of the tobala in this lively ensamble. Caramelized pineapple, cooked agave, sea salt and buttered popcorn are standout tasting notes that end with a smooth finish.

    Strong and rich on the nose. Smells great. Aromas of vanilla, peppers, and tomatillos. Palate is a bit sharp but full of flavor. Notes of sweet potato, potato chips, and sour cream with a splash of crumbled bacon on top. This is a little hot. Might need to sit on the shelf for awhile.

    Fruit and dark sugar. Roasted coffee and chocolate frosting. Interesting ensamble from El Buho. I cannot pick out the individual agaves but I get a strong Americana vibe and the Karwinskii takes a backseat. At 50% ABV it is well-balanced and has a long finish.
