About this mezcal

Zacbe Resposado is made with agave Espadin in San Agustín Amatengo, Oaxaca. Maestro Mezcalero Apolonio Ramirez Cruz produces this mezcal traditionally, cooking the agave in an underground pit oven, milling the cooked agave by ox-drawn tahona, fermenting with open air yeasts, and distilling this mezcal in a copper refrescadora still. After distillation, this mezcal is aged in American and French white oak barrels for at least three months. It’s then blended with small amounts of mezcal that has aged for over three years in oak.

Zacbé Mezcal

Zacbé Mezcal is made in San Agustín Amatengo, Oaxaca. Their marketing seems to be very focused on the mythical elements of mezcal history and production: "Mezcal Zacbé has only been touched by the water, sun, air and earth that saw the birth of the maguey plant; by the stones, the wood and the fire in the cooking; and it is only fermented with the yeasts of the maguey and the field."

I would recommend this as an entry mezcal for rum aficionado. Not very complex as the flavor is almost entirely on the sweet side, with butter, salted caramel, cookie dough and creme brule. Super smooth finish given by the oak barrel. Overall a solid mezcal that is probably an excellent mixer too.
