This mezcal is bade from 100% caponed Tobala grown by Don Tomás García Cruz and his son, on steep, white rocky soils. It is rare to find cultivated Tobala, but this experiement by the Cruz family of planting from seed led to maturation of the plants in half the time it typically takes in the wild. The agave is cooked for four days in ovens with mesquite and oak then fermented in open wood vats before double-distilling in copper pot stills. Only 180L were made of this very special bottling. The nose is bright and high-toned with notes of lime zest, white button mushroom, and cardamom. On the palate this spirit is delicate and fresh with notes of artichoke, sweet smoke from the mesquite, and fresh cardamom pods. (Michelle DeWyngaert)
