5 Sentidos Bruto Reposado

The Schtick: Distilled by Isidro Rodriguez in Rio de Parras, this reposado is produced from Agave Inaquidens after roasting in an earthen oven. Distilled on a Filipino still, wooden with copper elements, this should be interesting as it was matured after distillation for 7 months in American Oak. Let’s get to it – this is batch REPO01-19MX.

Distiller: Isidro Rodriguez

Bottler: 5 Sentidos

Brand: 5 Sentidos

Selection:

ABV: 48.8% ABV

Age: 7 Months


Nose: Wow – really unique. Sweet pineapple, prickly pear, lemon and lime. Sweet and effervescent with some really nice character – not too floral but there is some present. No smoke or clay so far.

Taste: Unique once more on the palate. Vanilla, gummy bear candies, passion fruit, guava and a hint of lavender. Really interesting. Thin, but satisfying.

Finish: Short to medium in length, lots of prickly pear, pear, apple and some faint smoke. This is bizarre but super fun.

Overall: This is probably one of the better rep’s I have had, and while it’s not topping my charts, I’m in love with how complex and unique it can be. It goes above and beyond, at the very least, to show how much spirit character can fight the barrel influence.

Thanks for reading!
