About this mezcal

Sacacuento Tobala is made semi-wild Tobala. The ranch that produces Sacacuento, Rancho Buenaventura, has been growing agave Tobala in a semi-wild environment for many years. Though this agave is relatively plentiful at the ranch, it’s small size and yield make its production a balancing act between demand and sustainable supply. This is a long and elegant mezcal, the prize of the Sacacuento lineup. The ABV may vary slightly by batch.

Sacacuento Mezcal

Sacacuento Mezcal has it's own 150-acre agave ranch named Rancho Buenaventura, which is located approximately 10 minutes south of the City of Nochixtlan, Oaxaca. The agave ranch has approximately 50,000 agave Espadin and 1,000 agave Tobala currently growing. Mezcal production on the ranch began in 1913 when Emilio Maldonado began making mezcal from the wild agave Espadin that grew among other crops. He sold his mezcal to travelers who often passed through the ranch. As he sat with the travelers and shared the mezcal, they would tell great stories. Those who told the best stories were called “Sacacuento.” Today, the ranch and mezcal brand are owned and operated by Emilio's granddaughter, Claudia Favila and her husband Rudy Favila.

i was excited to try this because i really enjoyed the joven and extra anejo from this brand.i had to search the internet to find it and perhaps my expectation was too high.it is a good mezcal but fell short of excellence.the nose is weak with hints of agave.the flavor was earthy tobala but was also weak.some mild sweetness on the finish but lacking detail.the cost was 120.00 and i was expecting more.to be fair,i sampled this shortly after opening the bottle.i have found that time will open up flavors.i will try again and update if it has changed. UPDATE 6-7-19 :wow! this blossomed wonderfully.very floral with sweet fruit flavors.cherry,apple and different assorted melon flavors.finish has a hint of smoke with a medium length and honey sweetness.exceptional!!!
