Introducing 5 Sentidos Ensamble de 4 Magueyes, a captivating field blend meticulously crafted by maestro mezcalero Atenogenes García in the Miahuatlan region of Oaxaca.

This particular batch, a private selection for the Aficionados spirits group, showcases the distinctive characteristics of a field blend commonly found in Miahuatlan. Atenogenes García expertly blended four unique agave varieties, resulting in a harmonious ensemble. Comprising 45% Bicuixe (Agave karwinskii), 25% Coyote (Agave lyoba - a hybrid of Agave karwinskii and Agave potatorum), 25% Tepextate (Agave marmorata), and 5% Madrecuixe (Agave karwinskii), this mezcal captivates with its complexity and depth.

To create this exceptional ensamble, the agaves were roasted together for six days, imparting a rich smokiness. The large tahona, pulled by an old Ford tractor, skillfully crushed the roasted agaves. Following milling, the agaves fermented naturally in a single pine tank for six days, allowing the indigenous yeasts to work their magic. Finally, the mezcal was double-distilled in two copper alembic stills in August 2019, further refining its character.

5 Sentidos takes its name from the five senses their mezcaleros employ throughout production. With a commitment to traditional craftsmanship, the producers of this mezcal shun modern machinery and instead rely on their senses to guide them. The brand originated from the renowned El Destilado restaurant in central Oaxaca, known for its inventive menu, exceptional cocktails, and a curated selection of agave spirits. Each expression from 5 Sentidos represents a curated journey through Mexico, showcasing the talents of some of the finest mezcaleros in the region.

Please note that 5 Sentidos is an uncertified mezcal labeled as "Destilado de Agave."

    What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?

    Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.

    Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.

    One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.

    Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.

    In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
