About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Espadin y Sierra Negra de Cuero is an ensamble of maguey Espadin and maguey Sierra Negra. The agaves are cooked together and then mashed by hand with wooden mallets. The mashed agave is then fermented in rawhide fermentation sacks with tepehuaje bark. Once fermented they are double distilled in small clay pot stills. This is produced by young mezcalero Reynaldo Alejandro, who is the son-in-law of famed mezcalero Alberto Martinez.

Batch OFF04 was a batch pick for Off Premise in Chicago.

Batch OFF04. Aromas of slightly soured orange juice that’s been sitting out on the counter for too long, papaya, mango, and pineapple. Also smells a bit like fresh baked goods, like pastries just out of the oven. The palate mostly matches the nose, but with additional hints of smoked red meats. The sweetness and citrus are a really nice backdrop to the meatier notes on the palate. Long finish.
