About this mezcal
Wahaka Guajolote con Fruta is a more traditional pechuga than the vegan “pechuga” mezcals that are also produced by Wahaka. For this mezcal, Maestro Mezcalero Beto Morales suspends a wild turkey breast in the still during the second distillation, but balances its meaty, oily characteristics by adding tangerine, banana, and cantaloupe directly into the base mezcal. The result is ripe with notes of citrus, roasted agave, plantains, and anise with a delightfully warm finish. This is a limited release from Wahaka.
Wahaka Mezcal is the result of several childhood friends from Mexico City who turned their passion for Mexico’s oldest distilled spirit into a sustainably produced, community-focused, and internationally recognized brand. In 2010, they set out to find Mexico’s finest mezcal. After months of intensely researching, travelling, and tasting their way through Oaxaca, they found kindred spirits in maestro mezcalero Alberto “Beto” Morales Mendez and his family, who, for five generations, have been perfecting the art of making mezcal in San Dionisio Ocotepec, a tiny village in the Central Valley of Oaxaca. Together they created Wahaka, and with it, a new model for mezcal brands, one that was as committed to making an award-winning product as it was supporting the community from which flourishes. Unlike any other spirit, mezcal is a product of its terroir—and you can taste the Spirit of Oaxaca in every drop of this artisanally crafted, small-batch elixir.

Aroma – fruity nose, but has a strong alcohol smell to it as well that is a little overpowering. Roasted agave as well.
Flavor – rush a fruity melon flavors on the front end of the pallet. Mouthfeel is fairly thin and doesn’t cost the mouth particularly well. Finish is very alcoholic and bitter, not particularly enjoyable. Not offensive but not great either.
At the price point I can’t recommend this bottle for purchase.
