Country Music superstar Toby Keith is coming to the South Loop Binny's Beverage Depot this Saturday, September 24th, from 2-3:30 pm. He is offering to autograph bottles of Wild Shot - his new super premium Mezcal.    What is Mezcal? Check out our Thoughts on Mezcal on the Binny's Spirit Blog. Wild Shot Silver Mezcal Toby Keith on his new Wild Shot Mezcal:
The tradition and history of Mezcal is magical to me. Mezcal dates back to the 16th century warrior celebrating the defeat of their enemies.... You drink it like Tequila but I think it goes down a lot smoother.
We got our hands on a bottle of the Silver Wild Shot Mezcal, complete with a worm right in the bottle. The nose is oily and smoky, showing earthy complexity than we expected. Pleasantly surprised on that count. The mezcal is fresh and lively on the palate, with touches of cocoa, sweetness and breadth, along with a matchstick/earthy funk. It has a whole lot more funky complexity than the increasingly clean, modern styled super-premium tequila category, and as Toby Keith points out, it does finish a lot smoother. And did we eat the worm? We haven't gotten that far down in the bottle quite yet. We'll have to get back to you.
