5 Sentidos - Tobalá/Jabalí/Sierra Negra 47.6% ABV
This field-blend of three agave varieties - cultivated Sierra Negra (a. Americana sp) and wild Tobalá and Jabalí (a. Potatorum/Seemanianna & a. Convallis, respectively) - is the first time maestro mezcalero Alberto Martinez and his son-in-law Reynaldo Alejandro have attempted to co-roast, co-ferment and distill these three varieties together. They harvested the wild agaves from the surrounding mountains, and the cultivated Sierra Negras from a farmed piece of land at about 6500 feet above sea level. Together, they roasted the agave varieties in a conical underground oven with encino firewood for about two weeks, using banana leaves and acacia leaves for insulation. They then allowed the cooked agaves to ferment for about three days with spring water and "encino de agua" tree bark, before eventually double-distilling the mash in a series of eight clay-pot stills at Alberto's Palenque, "La Escondida." Proofed with heads, hearts and tails by Alberto. Produced December 2021 and rested seven months in glass demijohns prior to bottling in August 2022. 180 total liters produced.
Cinco Sentidos ("Five Senses") originated as the house agave spirit in Oaxaca's acclaimed restaurant, "El Destilado." Our goal is to bring you uncertified nano-batch agave spirits that highlight varied production processes, agave diversity, and most importantly, the tradition and talents of the "familias magueyeras" who handcraft their spirit with rigor and esteem. Drink with Respect.
