About this destilado de agave
5 Sentidos Espadilla from Amando Alvarado Alvarez is made with wild maguey Espadilla (a. Sp.) in Santa Maria Ixcatlán, Oaxaca. As with all of Amando’s mezcal, the agaves were crushed by hand with wooden mallets, fermented in rawhide with spring water, and double distilled in clay pots.
5 Sentidos (or Cinco 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”.

Animalistic! Smokiness from Texas bbq and roasted jalapeño.
Sourdough, barnyard funkiness and Cuban pastilles de guayabo
A vanilla, roasted Agave and Tropical Skittles sweetness. Some mint, basil and light smoke on the exhale.
I’ve drank this with people new to Mezcal, this and Rey Campero Jabali and Derrumbes Durango have been the favorites.
4.25/5. Wonderful clay everywhere. Rounded… slick…. Wet. Nothing really pops, but im really enjoying the melange of earthy fruit flavors i get on the back end. Nice
