About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Ensamble de 4 Plantas is made by father Atenogenes Garcia and his son José. They are both accomplished distillers, especially when distilling agaves that belong to the the Karwinskii family. This field blend of maguey Bicuixe, Madrecuixe, Espadin and Cucharillo is the first time Atenogenes and José have incorporated a dasylirion plant into their production. All four species were roasted, mashed and fermented together before being distilled at Atenogenes’ palenque in San Isidro Guishe, Oaxaca. The addition of Cucharillo adds an earthy savoriness to the delectably sweet and fruity flavors of the agaves.

Tasted alongside the 7 Plantas (EN7P 05-21) as well as the Espadin Capon (CAP 08-21a). During the tasting this one blew the other pours clean out of the water.

5 Sentidos 4 Plantas Javier Vasquez Lucas (EN4PBG 02-22):

Nose: Orange peel oil, menthol, floral, nickel, banana, mint, and a sort of minerally bubblegum I associate with bicuixe ensambles.

Palate: I think the cucharillo comes through as briny peat, wet ash and earth. I also get mint, banana, black licorice, menthol. As the vapors dissipate I’m left with a pleasant combination of mineral, soil, mint, sweet tobacco. Little heat.

Super layered and cohesive experience. When you put it to your nose it actively goes from sweet banana, to a super salty minerally peat, then washes all that away with a really nice warm blanket of smoke and takes it back to the top with bubblegum. The experience is mirrored on the palate which I really enjoy. This along with the 7 Plantas are some of my favorite ensambles to date.
