About this mezcal

400 Conejos Anejo is made with maguey Espadin in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. This mezcal is made in a copper still, and it is aged in American oak barrels before bottling. The aging of this mezcal gives it a caramel color and a sweeter, softer taste.

400 Conejos Mezcal

Mezcal 400 Conejos is named after the ancestral belief that agave spirits were occupied by 400 rabbits. Those who ingested the agave spirits would be controlled by one of the 400 rabbits, but no one ever knew which rabbit you’d get with each mezcal. Each rabbit had a different personality and way of making you think and act. Mezcal 400 Conejos’ expressions are made with agave Espadin, and their mezcal is marketed mostly for cocktails.

* Lot: 002–22GS
* APV: 35%

This has a sweet caramel and light alcohol vapor nose, not really like traditional Mezcal much at all. The low ABV is also obvious even before you taste it.

Sour oak overpowers most of the other vegetal undertones. White pepper, parsley, caramel and coffee mostly – it’s odd-ish but not terrible, almost too sweet being its biggest offense.

The finish is pleasant and lingers a bit longer than any other 400 offering but not like a standard high-quality Mezcal. Sips okay and works well enough for a mixer too but not outstanding in either category.

At $40 bottle (and available only in MX as far as I know) I recommend buying one just to try it but that’s about it.
