Sipping Off The Cuff: Wahaka Mezcal Joven Ensamble

Mike & Alex taste and discuss Wahaka Mezcal Joven Ensamble.
 

 
Wahaka Mezcal Joven Ensamble
40% ABV (80 Proof); 50% Espadin / 25% Tobalá / 25% Madre Cuishe

wahakaallbottles-750h-938x750Our Joven Ensamble is what maestro Beto calls “a marvel” — a pure and magical blend of Espadín (50%), Madre-Cuishe (25%), and Tobalá (25%) that literally transforms in your mouth. At first, its aroma is all Tobalá, full of distinctive floral, herbaceous notes. But as it blooms on every surface of your lips, tongue, palate, and even gums, the full-bodied Ensamble develops into an earthy, citrusy Madre-Cuishe, whose flavors carry through the spirit’s long finish. All the while, the noble Espadín plays referree to its dominant brethren, allowing their respective virtues to spring forth in an orderly, balanced fashion. It’s a one-of-a-kind taste that’s 100% Wahaka, and a supreme mix of our best varieties.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Wahaka Mezcal Madre Cuishe

Mike & Alex taste and discuss Wahaka Mezcal Madre Cuishe.


Wahaka Mezcal Madre-Cuishe
42% ABV (84 Proof); 100% Madre Cuishe

wahakaallbottles-750h-938x750Like all great mezcales, Madre-Cuishe’s flavors are a product of its terroir. Subtly herbaceous, with a hint of freshly fallen rain, this rare, wild-harvested agave often grows in the low-lying volcanic terrain of Oaxaca’s Central Valleys, where warmer temperatures and drier conditions give birth to more savory, minerally mezcales. Our Signature Madre-Cuishe captures the singular character of this maguey and its environment to near perfection. Its bright, earthy notes develop delicately and slowly, while its long finish allows those flavors to linger gently. The Madre-Cuishe’s unique citrus flavors pair wonderfully with a variety of foods including exotic fruits.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Wahaka Mezcal Joven Espadin

Mike & Alex taste and discuss Wahaka Mezcal Joven Espadin.


Wahaka Mezcal Joven Espadin
40% ABV (80 Proof); 100% Espadin

wahakaJoven Espadín elegantly delivers what pure, artisanal mezcal is all about: an experience that awakens the senses with a delicate balance of smoke, earth, and sweetness. A specialty of our maestro mezcalero, Alberto “Beto” Morales, the Joven Espadín instantly transports you to our estate in San Dionisio Ocotepec, Oaxaca, where this mezcal’s agave is grown, cooked, crushed, fermented, and double-distilled on a palenque that Beto describes as “a place of respect and harmony, where no arguments or even bad words may be uttered.” This classic, 100% organic expression is unaged to honor the espadín agave’s complex flavor, and is bottled at 80 proof for equally enjoyable sipping and cocktail mixing.

Sipping Off The Cuff: Wahaka Mezcal Tobala Joven

wahakaallbottles-750h-938x750

Mike & Alex taste and discuss Wahaka Mezcal Tobala Joven

Find Wahaka online here.

Wahaka Mezcal Joven Tobalá
42% ABV (84 Proof); 100% Tobalá

wahakaNo other agave offers the variety of aromas and flavors as the Tobalá — “the king of mezcales” — a wild plant that grows in the highlands, often on extremely rugged mountainsides and rocky cliffs. Not only is foraging for the Tobalá a challenge, but its smaller size means a significantly larger number of plants are needed to produce this delicious mezcal. With its instantly recognizable aroma, the Tobalá is explosive across the palate — enriched with sweet floral and herbaceous flavors — and its sensations resonate with a hint of numbness, thanks to its long finish. One kiss, and you’ll quickly understand why this small-batch spirit is so special. Because it’s so rare, mezcal lovers often keep a bottle of Tobalá tucked away for special occasions. Enjoy sparingly!
