Welcome to WB Triple Shot, where we talk about three different spirits at three different price points. Today we’ll be talking about tequila’s smoky cousin, Mezcal.

Mezcal means “oven-cooked agave”, which is exactly how it’s made. Mezcal has seen a rise in popularity recently thanks to its rich smoky flavors and ability to add an extra “oomph” to a cocktail. We’re going to talk about three joven, or young, mezcals to try out.

Let’s dive into this month’s selections!

400 conejos joven

Priced at around $32, this mezcal is an easy drinker, with softer flavors and a pleasant, smoky finish. This is a great introduction to mezcal for your at-home bar.

Ojo de tigre

With a price tag of approximately $33, Ojo de Tigre is another approachable mezcal, with sweet citrus notes to tie in with the smokiness. The versatile flavors make it great for first timers to try.

For those seeking a mezcal with a sweet and fruity scent with light woodsy notes, Dos Hombres, priced around $70, is the mezcal for you. Although it is still smoky, it's light enough to have a few drinks and not get burned.
