Distiller: Tio Pedro Hernandez
Bottler: 5 Sentidos
Brand: 5 Sentidos
ABV: 49.6% ABV
Nose: Big, bold, sweet, fruity. The clay is king here, pairing nicely with mango, kiwi and lime. Rich cream cheese, icing, vanilla bean. Funky but not sour, sweet but not cloying. Ripe and juicy.
Taste: Sweet at first, then pepper and clay storm in. A rich meatiness, some minerality. Charcoal and cedar wood notes. Big and juicy, mango and papaya on the back palate.
Finish: Long, ashy, mineral forward and loaded with clay, beef bouillon, minerality, pepper and brine. The fruits are gone, leaving a pungent, savory finish.
Overall: Tio can really bring it. This simply great, complex, and delightful. Its hard not to love this from beginning to end.
