About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Tobala from Israel Palestino is produced in San Juan Bautista Jayacatlán, Oaxaca. A batch of this was imported into the US as an exclusive for West Lakeview Liquors, Chicago (lot WLV01). This very small batch was only 60 litres total, with just 20 bottles going to the US. Maestro mezcalero Israel Palestino still maintains the local tradition of fermenting his cooked agave in 40 liter and 70 liter clay pots. This was imported to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the West Lakeview Liquors.

a beautiful spirit!i ordered this through an on line vendor in chicago about 2 years ago.like another reviewer stated,this was a very small batch of 20 bottles.the nose reminds me of icing on a freshly made cake.the palate starts with baked sugar with hints of cinnamon.midway the taste of agave fruit comes through and the finish has some mild smoke with a little birthday cake.very gentle heat and a total treat.

Lot WLV01, distilled March 2018. A batch producing only 20 bottles, it was distilled in a hybrid copper/clay still. It’s rather astringent with flavours of dark chocolate, coffee, salt and dark berries. Also some smoked meat.
