About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Mexicanito is produced by Anatolio Ramirez in a palenque that is a 20-minute hike from the nearest dirt road. This batch of cultivated Mexicanito (A. Rhodacantha) comes from San Jose Rio Minas, located in the Mixteca Alta region of Oaxaca. This mezcal was distilled in a hybrid clay-pot and stainless steel still that is typical in the region. The label image pays homage to the donkey that carried the finished mezcal from the palenque to the nearest road for transport. The 2019 release of this was just 56 liters.

“La Colección Mixteca” is a curated selection of small-batch agave spirits crafted in the rustic distilleries of the mountainous Mixteca region of Oaxaca and Puebla. Each bottling explores the maestro mezcalero’s interpretation of subjecting agave endemic to the region to peculiar production methods and styles that have largely fallen out of favor in modern times. A significant portion of sales from the collection will be used for palenque improvement projects.

5 Sentidos

MXTC05-01 (46.3%)

nose: mushrooms, lactic funk, aleppo pepper, kumquats, very earthy

palate: WHOAH what is that flavor, there’s just this big earth-meatish flavor that grips you, mangos alongside, passionfruit, evolves toward stonefruit – more apricot than plum, dried herbs, some honest to god ex-bourbon peat toward the end, finishes more in a drying ctirusy range

I’m thoroughly impressed by this sample. Beautifully thick mouthfeel very round. Really hoping I can find a full bottle though I’m sure they’re long gone. 9/10

Incredibly unique, I’ve had nothing like it. This reminds me of a super savory, lactic gose with all sorts of stone and smoke character. Incredible.
