About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Pizorra is crafted by maestro mezcalero Delfino Tobón Mejia with wild agave Pizorra (A. Marmorata) that dots the clay mountains that surround the town of San Pablo Ameyaltepec. Maestro Delfino uses a single-pass, three-plate “reflux” style still that he crafted himself from copper and stainless steel. The nose on this mezcal has hints of cinnamon, plump cherries, red Airheads and under-ripe tropical fruit. The palate has notes of gingerbread, strawberry shortcake, and peppermint. The 2019 release of this was just 122 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.

Notes of dried plums. Not getting the typical agave Tepeztate notes. Almost like a tiki drink with grenadine. More like a sweet Tobala than a spicy Tep. Not the Mixteca Colllection – the Flask release, batch PZFK01-18.
