Proof66 Notes

Wahaka Mezcals are made in the mile high town of San Dionisio Ocotepec in Oaxaca, Mexico. They are produced by the Morales family, which claims 5 generations of mezcal experience. The marketing website suggests that mezcal has a "more than just a subtle aphrodisiacal effect." The agave are roasted in traditional earthen pits (imparting a smoky cast to the liquor) and then crushed with horse-powered millstones, making this the very essence of traditional mezcal making.The distillery is certified 100% organic by the USDA.

Made from wild agave, and you can tell. A big, rich, round, nutty nose leads directly into fire, smoke, pepper, and savory notes -- I immediately thought of pepper bacon, and considered making a Bloody Maria with this. I then beat that concept to death, remembering the price. Worth every penny, though.
