  • Intro:

    This is a Tobala distilled by Jorge Mendez after Marca Negra changed their name from Mano Negra. Distilled in San Luis Del Rio, this is Batch XJM27-17 and bottle 1297 / 1330. Lets dive in.

  • Nose:

    Sweet apricot, pepper, clay and paint. Some light agave stank, but overall there is a really lovely cotton candy undertone and a big crisp pepper note thats in your face.

  • Taste:

    Medium viscosity on the palate but lots of flavor. Pepper and fresh baked bread are very prominent initially, along with some clay, some ash smoke and a hint of pineapple.

  • Finish:

    The finish is long and ash forward. Lots of smoke here - along with pepper, burning wood, minerality and clay. Not much, if any, fruit from the nose.

  • Overall:

    Overall, I like this but the complexity fades after you trek past the nose. Thats not the end of the world, but I really prefer more complexity, especially in the finish. That said, this is drinking quite well, and I think its pretty good.
