About this destilado de agave

El Destilado Tobaziche from Berta Vasquez is produced at Berta’s palenque in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca. This maguey Tobaziche (Agave karwinskii) took 12-15 years to reach maturity. Berta is well-known in Oaxaca and her work with the maguey Tobaziche is not as commonly seen as with other types of maguey.

El Destilado

While some of the El Destilado brand's agave distillates are sourced from some of the same producers as the 5 Sentidos brand, the El Destilado spirits brand is otherwise not directly related to the El Destilado restaurant in Oaxaca City. The brand was founded by Michael Sager and Marcis Dzelzainis, who own the Sager + Wilde Restaurant and Wine Bar in London.

Subdued but pleasant enough nose, light fruit, slightly floral. Very light on the palate, agave sweetness dominates, touch of mineral. Slides down easy. Not a bad mezcal but lacks depth for me.
