About this destilado de agave

Cinco Sentidos Bicuixe was produced with wild-harvested maguey Cuixe, agave Karwinskii, by mezcalero Atenogenes Garcia in San Isidro Guishe, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. After being cooked underground for 6 days, the roasted magueys were crushed by a two-ton tahona pull by an old Ford tractor. Next, the smashed agaves were fermented in two pine vats along with calcium-rich well water for nine days. Lastly, it was double distilled in copper and then adjusted to its current ABV with well water and tails.

Note: The Madrecuixe bottle is pictured – the actual bottle is labeled as Bicuixe.

Lots of minerals on the nose. Hints of lemon, chalk, flan, and new car smell. The palate is balanced, full of dark fruit, and lingers. Notes of plums, dates, figs, dried dark fruit, dried mango, dried papaya, and a splash of spearmint.
