A bold and invigorating mezcal with initial rustic and vegetal notes, with layers of fruit and cheese, a smoldering campfire kind of smokiness, and a long balanced finish.
5 Sentidos Espadin Capon is made by maestro mezcalero Alberto Martinez and his son-in-law Reynaldo in Santa Catarina Albarradas, Oaxaca. When the Espadin agaves sprouted their quiotes (stalks), Alberto and Reynaldo cut off the stalks and allowed the agaves to remain in the field for almost one year. This practice concentrates the sugar in the heart of the agave, which is later distilled to make mezcal. The additional sugars change and enhance the mezcal a great deal.
5 Sentidos is named after the five senses that their mezcaleros use to produce their agave spirits. The producers of this mezcal do not use any model machinery or tools, being guided only by their senses throughout the production process. The brand was launched by El Destilado restaurant in centro Oaxaca. The restaurant is known for it’s creative menu, unique cocktails, and exception agave spirits. The brand is a curated tour of Mexico with a wide range of expressions that are made by some of the best mezcaleros in the region. Cinco Sentidos is uncertified mezcal and is labeled as “Destilado de Agave”.
