Wahaka Mezcal Joven Ensamble
Wahaka Mezcal // Oaxaca, Mexico
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.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"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."
