400 Conejos Espadin / Tobala

400 Conejos Espadin / Tobala is produced in the community of Santiago Matatlan, Oaxaca, which is known as "The Mezcal Capital of the World."

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.

* Lot: 004-20BA
* ABV: 40%

A nice enough mixer but not a sipper. Nose is unpleasant; the alcohol vapors are too heavy and the Tobala and citrus/fruit favors are pretty much nonexistent. It tries but falls short fast.

Better than the Joven and the Reposado offerings but the Cuishe (red label) and the Anejo are both better than this expression. Good for making a mass amount of novelty “Mezcal margs” for a larger group of friends without breaking the bank but that’s about it.

Lot 001-18GS
My partner picked this up in Mexico City, so this is a review of the 38% version. It’s fine for what it is. There’s just a hint of the fruity/fresh plastic of a Tobala. There’s a moderate amount of smokiness that comes through in the finish and it just barely peeks through in a cocktail. There was probably something halfway decent here before they watered it down.

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.

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.
