About this destilado de agave

Cinco Sentidos Ancho was created by a small cooperative in the village of Xochipala Guerrero. Together they harvested from their region wild agave “Ancho”, colloquially referred to as such due to its broad leafed “pence”. In response to seeing trees in the region be chopped down but not replanted, the co-op decided that a steam oven would be a more environmentally responsible method to cook their agaves.

Nose: Minty melon, inside of a cantaloupe, papaya, a bit of layered citrus and sweet potato, lemongrass

Palate and Finish: melon, mint, papaya, butternut squash, so soft on the mouthfeel, moving toward the finish I get a bit of milk duds, slight minerality and a leathery cumin. Finish is light pepper, some cinnamon, and a nice dry but long finish.

I’m partial to this bottle since it was the first Cupreata I ever had or bought and I loved it right away. It’s still solid and stands tall although slightly behind some of my other favorites (looking at you Benigno)

Nose: Burnt brown sugar, molasses, otarashi-dango tare (grilled mochi balls on sticks with brown sugar sauce that you have at festivals in Japan). Smells delicious!

Palate: Okay, this is not at all what I was expecting but it tastes exactly like mold. I don’t know if this is a bad bottle (it was the last pour) but it doesn’t taste at all like it smells and I can’t say I enjoyed this at all. Try as I might, I can’t really get around the this one overpowering flavor and taste anything else but distilled mold.

Okay, update: I tasted a bit straight out of the bottle, and it didn’t have the moldy taste. It tasted like a classic cupreata – autumn notes, pumpkin seeds, earthy tones. I don’t know, maybe it was the veladora?

Fun and vibrant batch of Guerrero Cupreata. The back label says it was a produced in a newly constructed palenque and I’m wondering if the fermentation vats were new because there are some woody/pine notes here along with some fresh lavender, olive brine, and burnt coffee. I enjoy this but there is a bit of a sour finish for me; will try to revisit this one given the other very strong review. Batch ANXCH 04-21b, bottle 49/253.

45.7% abv, batch ANXCH 04-21b

Review #83: Nose has canteloupe, mango, cheesecake, graham cracker, coffee bean, old wood, milk chocolate. Palate show more coffee beans, mango, toasted nuts, rose, floral honey, milk chocolate, and earthy. Finish is a bit short but a decent stone minerality.

Yet another cupreata that I’m in love with. So savory with bursts of fruits. Lots of that chocolate, coffee, and nuttiness as the base notes with really pretty fruity and floral top notes. There’s something about that makes me think it’s like a really fancy dessert. The only thing that unfortunately holds this back is the length of the finish, it just falls a bit flat. That’s okay though, just keep drinking more and then you won’t even care to notice.
