About this mezcal

Wild Shot Silver is made with “Green Agave.” Considering that all mezcal is made with “Green Agave,” this is not very descriptive.  Given that it is made in San Luis Potosi, this “Green Agave” is likely something interesting. This mezcal is meant to be used as a mixer for tequila-style drinks. Mezcal PhD did a nice post on this mezcal, and he has some great Toby quotes: Is Wild Shot the Cuervo Gold of Mezcal?

Wild Shot Mezcal

Wild Shot's slogan is Blame it on the worm. Musician Toby Keith has this to say about his mezcal brand: "There is an agave worm in every true bottle. And, the worm is not there for the look, it is there to be eaten. It is believed that the worm will bring a special experience and every individual will feel something different." All Wild Shot mezcal is labeled as made from 100% green agave which is misleading because there is technically no agave species with this name. Wild Shot mezcal is actually produced with agave Salmiana in San Luis Potosi.

After reading the amazing 5-star reviews I rushed out to find a taste of Toby Keith’s silver “green agave” mezcal. No bar I frequent carries this supposedly incredible worm mezcal but I luckily found a store selling a bottle for under $20! Did they want to clear their inventory or were they simply selling it at a loss so I could enjoy a fine mezcal on the cheap? I wasn’t sure but eagerly purchased a full bottle and went home to try it. What happened? Well, it’s not quite as awful as I had imagined. Monte Alban is much more offensive. Still, it’s pretty gross. The unique agave Salmiana flavors aren’t present which is unfortunate. “Water” comes to mind more than “industrial”. The aftertaste can be described as “wormy”. This might be the best of the worst. I’ll have to taste test it against Casamigos Mezcal. Lot 008472. Dated 08/08/14.

Absolutely the best Mezcal I ever drank! Only problem is you need to order it on line at Toby Keith’s website. I am trying to get my local liquor store to carry it.

Definitely the best Mezcal on the market. I use it in my BBQ Sauce to add that something special to my ribs. A must try. Hard to find but I order it from Toby Keith’s website and I have asked my local liquor store to start carrying it.
