About this mezcal

No other agave offers the variety of aromas and flavors as the Tobalá.  It is a wild plant that grows in the highlands, often on extremely rugged mountain sides and rocky cliffs. Not only is foraging for the Tobalá a challenge, but its smaller size means a significantly larger number of plants are needed to produce this Mezcal.  Wahaka Tobala is rich and full on the palate.

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.

Lot ORGULLO-10-AMM…Very faint aromas of coffee and chocolate….light and wispy…there’s nothing that will overpower the palate with this one….at 42% ABV it’s very easy and smooth….it has some nice notes of charred oak and leather….but notes are a bit distant….this is a nice mezcal for those that don’t like mezcal too hot or with too much alcohol flavor…this is perfect for that

Herbal and clean. Simple profile and tobala flavor shines through…still feels like its pulling its punches

Lot: ARMONIA 001, 40% ABV. Alcohol, minor agave sweetness & aroma; enough redeeming qualities to rate just ok. My mediocre experience with this bottling was/is an anomaly among Wahaka mezcales.
