About this mezcal

El Silencio Joven is a blend made with agave Mexicano, Tobasiche, and Espadin. El Silencio is yet another brand with mezcal produced from master Mezcalero Pedro Hernandez. He makes some other fantastic mezcal for other brands as well. The agave Mexicano, Tobasiche, and Espadin are all cooked, fermented, and distilled separately. After distillation, they’re blended together to make the final product. The Mexicano and Tobasiche are both only distilled once, while the Espadin is double-distilled. El Silencio Joven has aromas of sundried vegetables, leather, dried fruit, and sweet smoke. It tastes of white pepper, jasmine, and fennel, and it has a slightly charred finish.

El Silencio Mezcal

El Silencio is a Los Angeles-based craft mezcal label whose product is produced in San Baltazar Guelavila, Oaxaca by Pedro Hernández, a ninth-generation Maestro Mezcalero. As an organic Mezcal, they use only the finest and carefully selected 10-12 year old Espadin agaves. Their products are handmade in small batches. Like other artisanal Mezcals, El Silencio’s production does not involve any additives or industrial processes.

In April 2019, Constellation Brands took a minority stake in El Silencio. Constellation Brands is one of the largest beer companies in the United States; the company also has a significant stake in Canopy Growth, a publicly traded cannabis company.

I’m more of a fan of higher ABV mezcals for sipping neat, but this one is good regardless. The flavor notes are a bit muddled at 40% ABV, but I believe this is really engineered for cocktails, so the lower ABV makes sense in that context. This is a great choice for cocktails and offers a lot more texture and flavor than the El Silencio Joven. I’d highly recommend using this if you’re looking to make a traditional cocktail and want to add a bit of sweetness and smoke. This is a good choice.
