Review: Wild Shot Mezcal Silver

wild shot silver mezcalA beverage with a name like Wild Shot doesn’t exactly wear subtlety on its sleeve, and this unaged mezcal — complete with, or rather extremely proud of, the worm at the bottom of the bottle — doesn’t really hold back. Country musician Toby Keith is the man behind this celebrezcal, and you can click the official link below if you’d like to see the man with a gusano between his teeth.

Made from 100% green agave, Wild Shot pours clean and offers a rich and straightforward smokiness on the nose, far more savory than sweet. On the body it’s more of the same — mesquite fire smoke, with a sweeter finish that offers some caramel and just a hint of citrus fruit. Very simple and straightforward, it’s a fine mezcal that novices will undoubtedly enjoy, but which lacks the depth that true mezcal fans will want.

But hey, at least you get to eat the worm.

86.8 proof.

    Looking at the fine print on the bottle it says 40% alcohol and 86.8 proof. How is this possible? I understood proof = 2x alcohol content.

      Good eye, Kent. I presume this is a misprint on the bottle that Wild Shot photographed. My sample bottle reads 43.4% alcohol / 86.8 proof.

    Toby Keith’s Brand Wild Shot Mezcal has two offerings..Silver and Reposado!! Silver is very simple, straightforward, and it’s a fine mezcal that novices will undoubtedly enjoy. Reposado has all the depth that any true mezcal fans will love. I know I do!!! Please take the time to give Wild Shot Reposado a taste!! You will be glad you did!!
