Zignum Silver

Zignum Silver tastes more like a tequila than a traditional mezcal. It’s made in Tlacolula de Matamoros, Oaxaca at a large, modern production facility.

About this mezcal

Zignum Silver is unaged after distillation. It has slight notes of citrus and sweet green agave. Given it’s production processes, where the agave is steamed rather than smoked or roasted, this mezcal does not have a smoky character like mezcals made in a more traditional setting.

Zignum Mezcal

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.

It doesn’t taste like mezcal, it tastes more like a bad tequila. By the way, the bottle does not have the “Mezcal Artesanal” legend, so it is likely not following the traditional way of doing mezcal, and it is the reason why it doesn’t taste like mezcal. My advice, do not buy Zignum Silver

My first venture into Mezcal. For the price, this tastes better than most blanco tequila and mixes extremely well.

Is this Vodka or Mezcal? It’s hard to tell….. The plant seems very under matured, doubtful they even waited 3 years before harvesting…. This reminded of me the time I had “McCormics Whiskey” 90%vodka-10%food coloring….. DO NOT BUY….

Although if you mix it with enough lime and sugar you may still be able to get it down… I mean I did still drink it… Begrudgingly

A bit shy but not bad. Mild smokiness, liquorice, candy and pear.

Had a small taste of this mezcal and it was gross. It tasted like rotten tequila and medicine. Avoid Zignum at all costs.
