About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Tepextate from Atenogenes Garcia is produced in San Isidro Guishe, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca. The agaves are roasted for six days, then crushed by a large tahona that is pulled by an old Ford tractor. After they are milled, the agaves are fermented with naturally occurring yeasts for six days. They are then double-distilled in two copper alembic stills. This is produced in extremely limited capacity. The batch from February 2019 was just 38 liters.

TP01-19CA, Feb 2019, 38 Litres. Bottle 15/36. 48% ABV.

The imagined odour of mimetic polyalloy (T2), faint pickle brine, citrus fruit and grape cotton candy. Buttery soft palate, Rum and Butter candy bar, maple dipped brussel sprouts and mint toothpaste. Nice burn in the middle that lingers on the palate. Dry green pepper, salty acetone, bittersweet milk chocolate, lychee jelly cup and mildew on the finish. Shape shifts like a T-1000. Amazing end to end.
