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.

Middle of the road mezcal. The aroma is mildly smoky, clean, and almost minty but less herbal and more like peppermint candy. The taste is more herbal with singed grass over clean agave, then sweet like white sugar syrup. There’s some heat to it in the form of cracked peppercorn but not a whole lot more going on here. The body is light but not disappointingly so, and legs run lighting quick in the glass leaving behind just a few drops here and there. The finish is balanced, short to medium in length, and has just a nice lingering smokiness and woody agave note plus a bit of bright citrus like lime or Meyer lemon. A great starter mezcal perhaps or definitely good enough for cocktails.

Tasted at Baja Betty’s (San Diego) Agave club for August.
I was pleasantly surprised how much “better” this was than the Joven. So much more good flavors with added Cuishe.
Aroma-good campfire smoke and plenty of fruit–plum, cherries, and is that hibiscus? It’s like a Jamaica drink with smoke.
Taste–fairly thick and definitely oily. Taste has much more flavor than the Joven.
Finish–really good and long with all the good flavors (that IS hibiscus!) from the taste and aroma.
No bottle info. But the rep was one of the coolest cowboys around. He knew his stuff.

Considerably better than Del Maguey VIDA Clásico and Banhez. Sippable with nice agave flavor.

* Lot: 001–1QBA
* ABV: 40%

One of the better 400 offerings. The nose is slightly sour cooked agave with a nice mid-amount of smoke. Still a heavy presence of alcohol here despite its low ABV but definitely much nicer than the blue, purple and green label 400 offerings.

The front is sweet and spicy, a decent hint of Cuishe comes through. Red pepper, smoke again and then burnt corn finish it out. This is too light overall though and unfortunately the Cuishe does not linger whatsoever, the flavors dissipate far too quickly.

Makes an excellent Mezcal Mule or Margarita and at $35/bottle (in MX) it’s a good low-priced option or introduction Mezcal.

On the nose, first, I get a strong smoke, followed by hints of mineral tea grass, and a slight bit of citrus on the flavor. I get a full body cigar very herbal, but after the first couple of sips, it’s quite enjoyable.
