Wahaka Tobala

The Schtick: Wahaka is mezcal produced by a small group of acquaintances from Mezica. This expression is distilled entirely from Tobala, one of the smaller varietals. This is my first brush with Wahaka branded spirits, and I am very much looking forward to it. Let’s dive in.

Review #1177 | Mezcal Review #17

Distiller: Alberto Morales Mendez

Bottler: Wahaka Mezcal

Brand: Wahaka Mezcal


ABV: 42% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Crisp salinity and strong agave character. Sweet and savory, with a good bite of clay and pepper

Taste: NIce mouth feel with just a pinprick of ethanol. Earth, clay, really vibrant salinity. I love the lean here towards the salty side. Light grapefruit and leather.

Finish: Short, but crisp and clean. Light ash, loads of brine, clay and pepper. Faint tobacco.

Overall: Vibrant but savory. Nice balance, with lots of brine and earth. Pepper, clay and faint tobacco to close it out. Really a fan of the profile here.

Thanks for reading!
