About this mezcal

Cinco Sentidos Espadin is made with agave Espadin that grew at approximately 5,100 feet above sea level in San Martin Tilcajere, Oaxaca. The whole batch is just 62 liters. Maestro mezcalero Tio Pedro Pascual Hernandez Arellanes cooked 18 agave Espadin hearts in an underground pit oven with huamuchil and encino wood for five days. The cooked agave were then mashed by hand and fermented in a single pine vat for 13 days. It was then double distilled in small clay pots at Tio Pedro’s palenque in Santa Catarina Minas in April 2018.

  • Overall:

Really nice clay-distilled agave Espadin mezcal from a mezcalero who worked at Mezcal Real Minero for many years. He now has his own palenque and produces small batches. There is a little bit of cheese here with dark cherries and tobacco. There is a flavor here like Hot Tamale candy which is really nice – not artificial or too sweet but rather a sugar and cinnamon. This is a pretty small batch and only available in California at the moment but look out for more batches in the future.
