About this mezcal

Zignum Reposado is aged 9 months in new medium toasted American oak barrels. The agave used in this mezcal are not smoked, so it will not have a smokey character. It has a light body with notes of raisins, banana, and vanilla.

Zignum Mezcal

Zignum Mezcal is indirectly owned by the Coca Cola Company (source). Casa Armando Guillermo Prieto (AGP), where Zignum is made, is the largest distillery in Oaxaca. Their main goal is to create and commercialize agave distillates using the most advanced industrial technology. Rather than roasting their agave in pit ovens, their agave is cooked in an industrial autoclave that does not impart the smoke that is found in mezcal made at smaller traditional operations.

Extremely easy to drink no alcohol on the initial taste very smooth. It smells and tastes of bananas Foster. Not smoky, and not vegetal. Not acidic, more alkaline.

Nose: Bags of bourbon character, vanilla, caramel, guava, passion fruit, and a very out of place cream of mushroom soup smell. Only after a few minutes in the glass, do I get the more familiar mezcal smells of smoke and agave.

Taste: Very boubon like, Oaky vanilla caramel, peaches, apricot, orange juice, and a very un bourbon like smoke. Salt, seawater, seaweed, green peppers.

Comments: There is literally nothing wrong with this spirit when you conciser it’s merits, separately, it’s clearly good spirit, in really active casks, I just find when the vegital mezcal smoke is wrapped in a sweet bourbon coat is a strange sensation. Perhaps this would of worked better in a less active cask… Hard one to mark.

I find this very enjoyable even though It reminds me more of rum than mezcal.

Golden brown. Vanilla, coconut, pineapple juice, almost pina colada-like!

Scent: 4/5
Mouthfeel: 3,5/5
