The Ensamble stands out from the rest of the Wahaka range, which are all single-agave releases. Mezcalero Alberto “Beto” Morales describes the Ensamble as “a marvel” - it’s a blend of three Wahaka mezcals: Espadín (50%), Madre Cuishe (25%) and Tobalá (25%). The result is a full-flavored, complex spirit.

Tasting Notes

"The nose is unmistakably Tobalá - distinctively herbaceous and floral. The volcanic terrain of the Madre Cuishe offers earthiness and minerality on the full-bodied palate, along with citrus and pepper notes. The Espadín ties it all together with an underpinning of agave and light smoke that carries through on the long finish."
