About this mezcal

Wahaka Jabali is made with maguey Jabali, which takes its name from the Spanish word for “wild boar” because the maguey’s thorns resemble a boar’s teeth. This semi-cultivated agave, which takes between 10 and 12 years to reach maturity, produces an explosively flavorful mezcal. Intense pine and herbaceous notes jump out at first whiff of Wahaka’s Jabalí.  There are flavor notes of bright fruit and spice with a touch of oil and mint. This is a very limited edition.

Wahaka Mezcal

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.

Faint green asparagus and strong celery aromas….Slightly sweet on the nose with hints of cocoa…..On the palate, sharp with notes of carrots and charred sweet potatoes….Strong taste of burnt vegetables, Black pepper, and sugar….Feels like a much higher ABV than it actually is…very hot and sharp. Not my favorite Jabali.

this mezcal is ok but overpriced.it is mellow and has hints of mint and light black pepper.entry is mild and the mint is up front with agave sweetness.it is thin and watery with a diminished finish.not much there considering it cost 100.00.the rey campero jabali is the opposite.that mezcal will blow your hair back!too bad i dont have any hair left these days.not great but not bad.
