5 Sentidos Tobalá Agave Spirit 750ml - This unique mezcal is a product of the tradition and expertise of "Tío" Pedro Hernandez Arrellanes, a maestro mezcalero with over 50 years of experience making spirits in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. Like many in the town, his small palenque preserves the ancestral tradition of distilling in clay pots.

This limited edition bottling captures the essence of the region's earthy agave distillates, combined with sweet and savory fruit notes that create a surprisingly complex flavor profile.

Crafted from 100% Tobalá (agave potatorum) and with an ABV of 51.86%, the mezcal is produced using traditional techniques such as hand milling with wooden mallets, fermentation in pine vats with well water, and double distillation in clay pots.

Tasting Notes

  • On the nose, the mezcal offers a blend of plantains, dates, and roasted agave.
  • Flavors of caramelized figs, apples, and root vegetables characterize the palate.
  • The finish is long and satisfying, with smoked salt and wet stone notes.

This unique mezcal is a testament to the passion and expertise of Tío Pedro Hernandez Arrellanes and a must-try for any mezcal lover looking for a complex and authentic spirit that captures the essence of Oaxaca's mezcal-making traditions.

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.
