Wahaka Mezcal Reposado con Gusano
Wahaka Mezcal // Oaxaca, Mexico
The Reposado con Gusano is a unique release in the Wahaka Mezcal range. It’s the only aged mezcal in the line, starting as the Joven Espadín and rested from four to six months in re-charred American oak barrels. It’s also the only Wahaka expression with the infamous gusano (worm), which the brand touts as “clarifying the radicals of the barrel” and purportedly has healing and aphrodisiac properties.

"The nose is floral and smoky, offering notes of agave and tobacco. On the smooth and balanced palate, there are notes of roasted agave, vanilla, butterscotch, oak and a light smoke. The dry, medium finish offers grassy and subtle vegetal notes, citrus peel, a hint of almond, and a wisp of smoke at the end."
