Review #1272 | Mezcal Review #29

Distiller: Tio Pedro Hernandez

Bottler: 5 Sentidos

Brand: 5 Sentidos


ABV: 51% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Vinegar, olives, blue cheese. Crisp brine, vanilla bean. Stanky agave and a dry martini crossed in the middle. Super fun nose. Cream cheese frosting for days.

Taste: Rich mouth feel. Honey, wafer cookie. Lots of rich creamy sweetness before the funk rolls in. Clay, brine, olive, earth and a lovely savory note. Faint pepper. Heat very much in check. The clay character is really something.

Finish: Long, meaty. Smoked beef, tomato, vinegar and a chalky vegetal exit.

Overall: All over the board in the best way. I can’t think of anything i’ve had that is like this. I love how diverse and interesting it is.

Thanks for reading!
