About this mezcal
400 Conejos Espadin / Tobala is made with agave Angustifolia and agave Potatorum. This mezcal has notes of smoke, citrus, orange blossom, and fresh grass.
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.

Nose is all ethanol heat with some sweetness
Taste is mostly smoke and light cinnamon and sweetness and more smoke to follow. No floral notes like Tobala’s are known for and is all drowned out by the signature over smokey sweet flavor like most cheap Espadins in the US.
A nice mixer but not a sipper. Alcohol vapors are unpleasant and heavy and the Tobala favors are pretty much nonexistent.
Far better than the blue label and the Reposado but even still do yourself a favor and skip this offering and instead buy the red label (Cuishe) or the Anejo if you are actually in Mexico for about $45, both are better than this particular expression.
Lot 004-20BA. Similar to the Espadin likely because of so little Tobala present. Weak flavors. Slight bit of bubble gum sweetness. Places in MX like to price it as a 100% Tobala. An outrageous $27 USD/pour at Muyal in Tulum. The Espadin-Cuishe is much better but still not great. Bottles at the Cancún airport cost about $45 USD. Regardless of cost however, this is just a weak watery boring mezcal.
Very enjoyable bottle! Sweat, fruity and mouth warming. Floural notes that make you want to keep sipping. 400 rabits is now one of my favorit mexican folklore stories and this brand does it well. This bottle is well worth the money.
Only the second tobala I’ve had. Vey sweet, very smooth, higher proof would be nice. Impressed, can’t wait to get another bottle. For the price it’s hard to find anything this sippable. $30 down south.
Affordable, yes but honestly, I prefer the Joven when it comes to 400 Conejos. Use as a mixer
This is a lovely Tobala ensemble.
It’s incredibly smooth, soft, warm, full-bodied, and drinks very well. I don’t get a lot of floral notes and complex flavors here as in some Arroqueno and Tepeztate ones, but this strikes me as a very well balanced ensemble. Just so enjoying to sip on. Not harsh at all, a bit oily (seems like it’s always the case with Tobala?).
At ~$30 in local Mexico shops, this is also a pretty affordable Tobala.
