A rich mineral sensation, like putting your face up to one of Yosemite’s wet granite faces
The Nacional Tobalá is incredibly rich and full flavor, like going to birthday party in Oaxaca. There the grounding in black mole with hits of chocolate and guajillo peppers. This is an incredibly distinctive bottle that uses its high ABV to express a world of flavor.
Method / Background Notes
Like all of Mezcal Nacional’s bottles, this one is labeled in honor of a major date in Mexican history. This one is named after 1931 when an earthquake destroyed most of Oaxaca and is “a tribute to the great people of Oaxaca who lost much in 1931, but who never lost the courage, hope, and determination to persevere.”
