Really awesome ensamble. Perfect balance of sweet, spice, and slight vegetal funk. If you like Miahuatlán mezcals, this hits the spot. The addition of 5% Cucharillo is awesome. Great example of a “field blend”. Batch EN7P 05-21

Wow! Another one of my favorite bottles! Somebody else said that this bottle is like the whole world of mezcal into one and I couldn’t agree more. I finished this bottle way too quick haha the bicuishe and madrecuish being 2/3 of the ensamble help to give it bright, earthy nose and then once you take the first sip the layers upon layers of additional magueys open up. Not going to waste time putting names to the flavors because I feel like each sip was different— just drink it and taste for yourself!

Nose – Rose stems. Floral for days. Pine wood. Slight bleu cheese aroma as well.

Palate – Funky and floral – what a combo! Classic bubblegum sweetness in the middle. Baking spices. Finish had some flower petal and pink salt flavors. Extremely complex, I could carry on much longer dissecting this although it’s only a 2 oz. sample. More please. 🙁

The smell hits you immediately. Green, grape, banana, cinammon and agave, this smells amazing!
The palate is an explosion! So many flavors going on. Initial fruit and brine, morphs into green grapey flavors that then go into fruit punch, greenness, minerals, salt and rocks and river water. This is like the whole world of mezcal distilled into one. This might be the ensemble that I’ve been looking for all this time!

Now that I’ve gotten more attuned to the flavors of each maguey, I can tell for example the mixture of flavors of bicuixe, madrecuixe and tepeztate. The others are in too small amounts to really tell, but it creates an amazingly delicious expression.

Sampled at Tortuga y Chango in Atlanta then went out and bought a bottle at Elemental Spirits Co.

I first sampled this one alongside the 4 Plantas and Espadin Capon. Among the three this one was my least favorite. The bottle’s been opening up for a few months so I decided to revisit:

5 Sentidos 7 Plantas (EN7P 05-21):
Nose: cayenne, candied fruit, bubblegum, watermelon

Palate: bubblegum, salty cheese and fruit salad, cinnamon; if I’m being honest where this shines best is in the finish, long after the vapors dissipate. It’s extremely complex: whipped cream, wet soil, nuts, fresh fruit, spearmint, dried lavender. Ate some tortilla chips a little while after now I’m getting canned peaches. Yum.

Honestly really glad I decided to revisit this bottle. Wasn’t blown away by it at first and I’m thinking that’s because I first had it in a flight. We all know mezcales are best enjoyed slowly but because that finish is the star, it feels like this one in particular demands your time. I was getting unique notes a good 30 minutes after I finished my glass so if you encounter this in the wild, maybe throw on some headphones and get ready to think for a while.
