"The Mezcal Vago Tobala en Barro is made by Salomon Rey Rodriguez (Tio Rey) in Sola de Vega, Oaxaca. The Agave Tobala is generally the most coveted of all the agave species in Oaxaca. It is a small, difficult to cultivate agave, and has very distinct flavor characteristics. There are many references to the prized Tobala in Oaxacan culture. Its Latin name is Agave Potatorum. The Tobala en Barro has a totally unique flavor, partly because the agaves used for this mezcal were planted in 1996 making them 17-18 years mature when they were harvested. There is such a small amount of this particular ripe agave that Mezcal Vago can only source 200 bottles a year and only for a couple of more years. However, Tio Rey just planted 40,000 more Tobala! The Mezcal Vago Tobala en Barro is our most prized Mezcal. The combination of 17 year old Tobala plants with the ancient Olla de Barro techniques of Tio Rey result in an unbelievably unique spirit. The elegance of Tio Reys mature, cultivated Tobala coupled with the earthy, minerality of the Olla de Barro distillation produces a complex and deep flavor and body. Add the hand of Tio Rey and his unique spring water and the result is magical. Turning heads in aficionado communities around the world, this spirit is in a class of its own." - The Distillery
