Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
Upon the initial pour, the liquid presents a crystalline clarity that dances with light, offering visual confirmation of its purity and meticulous production process.
The nose is immediately enchanted by a symphony of verdant and floral scents, typical of the Tobala agave. Wild herbs, fresh earth, and a hint of minerality coalesce to form an aroma that is as complex as it is inviting. Notes of tropical fruits and wet stone provide an ethereal backdrop, making for an aromatic experience that is both vibrant and grounding.
The palate is an intricate landscape where the Tobala agave takes center stage. An opening note of fresh green agave marries seamlessly with vegetal undertones and flavors of ripe pear. A unique 'penca' (leaf) character, endemic to this specific variety of Tobala, offers a mild smokiness intertwined with layers of spice and mint. The character of the agave is undeniably preserved, amplified by the judicious lack of aging, resulting in a spirit that is both robust and elegantly nuanced.
The finish is remarkably clean and extended, reiterating the green agave notes and earthy tones, fading slowly into a final whisper of mineral and gentle smoke. A dash of citrus zest punctuates the closing act, leaving the palate refreshed and yearning for another sip.
Exclusively curated by Third Base Market & Spirits, Fosforo Mezcal Tobala Penca is not merely a drink; it is a sensorial journey that celebrates the art of Oaxacan mezcal creation. This handcrafted spirit, distilled from wild Tobala agave, is an epitome of artisanal excellence, perfect for those who pursue the authentic and the extraordinary in their libation experiences.
