Rey Campero Tobala Mezcal 750ml
Rey Campero Tobala Mezcal 750ml - Rey Campero Tobala is made from maguey Tobala harvested from about 6000 feet above sea level. The high altitude and cooler climate give the Tobala a unique character. However, given the small stature of this agave, it can take enormous amounts of Tobala to produce very small batches of mezcal.
Rey Campero means “King of the Countryside.” It is an artisanal Mezcal that represents the culture, tradition, and art of Candelaria Yegolé, a small town in the Southern Highlands of Oaxaca, Mexico.
The brand is committed to helping maguey producers by creating job opportunities and finding markets for the best Mezcal. The brand was founded by the Mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada, who learned how to make Mezcal from his father and worked in the palenque.
- The nose of this mezcal is characterized by sweet notes of honey and leather, with hints of coriander and a farm-like aroma.
- The taste is a blend of bagaso, cinnamon, leather, and brown sugar.
- The finish is spicy, oily, and smoke-free, making it a complex and reasonably priced mezcal.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
