About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Pizorra is crafted by maestro mezcalero Delfino Tobón Mejia with wild maguey 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.

5 Sentidos

5 Sentidos is named after the five senses that their mezcaleros use to produce their agave spirits. The producers of this mezcal do not use any model machinery or tools, being guided only by their senses throughout the production process. The brand was launched by El Destilado restaurant in centro Oaxaca. The restaurant is known for it's creative menu, unique cocktails, and exception agave spirits. The brand is a curated tour of Mexico with a wide range of expressions that are made by some of the best mezcaleros in the region. Cinco Sentidos is uncertified mezcal and is labeled as "Destilado de Agave".

A note about the bottle shape: The short round bottles are the US release bottles. In other areas of distribution (e.g. Mexico, Canada, Japan) the bottles are the taller Bordelaise shape.

Honeysuckle fragrance on the nose! A sweet, light and delicate fragrance that had me excited to dive in. Flavors of mint, clove, pinesap, lemon balm. Refreshing and unique.

Lot PZ02-19MX. Tried at El Destilado restaurant in Oaxaca City.

Sweet, moderate mouthfeel. Creamy and lush. Tons of fruit here, a dab of cinnamon and some salinity / minerality. Super fascinating profile here and it reminds me of holiday spice in so many ways. Strawberry and blackberry ice cream, sorbet, cream, some cinnamon.

MTXC03-01. This tastes completely different than the Pizorra I had in Oaxaca from the same Mezcalero. If I had blind tasted this I would have thought it was a Raicilla or even a funkier Rhum Agricole. It’s lactic and grassy and fruity. Juicy fruit gum, lime, candy corns, green tea, white tic tacs, fresh sugar cane, spoiled milk, pineapple, and cinnamon. Really unique and interesting.

Loving this! Batch MXTC03-01, bottle 62/158

Nose of pound cake and Twinkies, with strawberry and green mango followed by subtle hints of chives and freshly chopped tomatillos. Some cinnamon and baking spice start to take over after extended oxidation.

I completely agree with Tyler’s take when it comes to the palate – major tiki drink vibes here. There are moments of coconut, then pomegranate (grenadine), then pineapple, all accompanied by a fruit nectar like sweetness. I was really surprised by how creamy this is since it’s not distilled in clay. Perhaps Maestro Delfino’s hybrid, three-plate still is the secret! Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy in the best way. This is a killer bottle!

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.
