5 Sentidos Espadín-Tobaziche Agave Spirit 750ml - This limited-release mezcal is a special spirit made by Mezcalero Tio Pedro Hernandez in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. The mezcal was crafted using mature, cultivated maguey Tobaziche and Espadin agave, harvested at approximately 5,100 feet above sea level. This combination of agaves and the high altitude of the harvest location suggest a unique and complex flavor profile.

The agave was cooked in an underground conical oven with guamuchil and encino wood for five days, imparted a smoky flavor and aroma to the mezcal. After cooking, the agave was hand-mashed with oak mallets and fermented in one pine vat with well water for 13 days before being double distilled in 2 clay pot stills.

Tasting Notes

  • The mezcal gives off a slight prickle and warming sensation on the nose, followed by a bright aroma of grapefruit and raisins.
  • The mouthfeel is oily with generous alcohol, and the flavor profile includes notes of BBQ brisket, cocoa powder, wet forest, and clay. This combination of flavors and aromas suggests a unique and complex mezcal with a depth of character that is sure to impress.
  • The finish is medium to long, allowing the complex flavor profile to linger on the palate.

This limited release mezcal is a true representation of the art of mezcal-making, with its unique blend of agaves and traditional production methods. It is perfect for sipping on its own, or for mixing into cocktails for a smoky and complex flavor.

    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.
