About this destilado de agave

5 Sentidos Tobaziche from Tio Pedro was released as one of three special editions for Chicago’s West Lakeview Liquors. This ancestral spirit was distilled by Tio Pedro Hernandez Arellanes in Santa Catarina Minas, Oaxaca. Tio Pedro hand-mashed approximately 30 cooked Tobaziche hearts with a wooden mallet, before fermenting them with naturally occurring yeasts in a pine vat. The agave was then double distilled in small clay pots.

2018 | Batch WLV03 from West Lakeview Liquors in Chicago

First tobaziche I’ve had.

Pungent, a bit gasoline-y on the nose.
Lots going on – standout is some vegetal bitterness like butter lettuce and grass. At 50% the alcohol content overwhelms a lot of the taste, but the herbal “funk” I enjoy from the A. Karwinskii varietels pervades. Lingering finish that my friend described as “sugar snap peas and dirt”, which sounds about right to me.

This is not one for the faint of heart.
