Mezcal Rey Campero Tobala

100% Maguey Tepextate (Marmorata) 48.5% Alc./Vol.

Oaxaca, Mexico.

The nose opens with citrus, then reveals some ashy minerality–though there’s less smokiness than many mezcals.

Flavors of chocolate nibs, cinnamon and spice come together with remarkable smoothness on the palate and in a lingering finish that’s light despite a nearly 50% alcohol content.
