About this mezcal

5 Sentidos Jabali-Tobala is an ensamble of wild agave Jabali and wild agave Tobala from the Sierra Norte. Each batch varies slightly, and the number of piñas used in each batch is listed on the back label of the bottle. Like other Cinco Sentidos mezcal, this is made in small batches of only 100-200 litres total. The agave Jabali and Tobala are cooked together in an underground horno, milled by hand with axes and mallets, fermented with Tepehuaje for four days, and double distilled in small clay pots. The clay pot still used to make this mezcal is artistically rendered on the front label of the bottle. The ABV may vary by batch.

  • Overall:

51% ABV. Batch from March 2017. Bottle 45/75. Sweet aromas of caramel, honey, and brown sugar. More vegatal aromas of dried tobacco and fresh green olives. The palate has notes of cream cheese. brie, banana peels, unripe pineapple, and prickly pear cactus. This is really awesome. Super round, big bold flavors. Everything I’ve had from Alberto Martinez has been pure magic and this is no exception.
