5 Sentidos Sierra Negra Mezcal
5 Sentidos Sierra Negra is made with maguey Sierra Negra. The agave is hand mashed, fermented with spring water and tepehuaje bark in stone. This bark provides an organic source of nitrogen that is used to stabilize the fermentation. Albarradas is approximately 7,500 feet above sea level and too cold to ferment the agave without some sort of stabilizer. Once fermented, this mezcal is double distilled in clay pot stills.
There are hints of various clays and bark and cinnamon with a bit of red pepper. It has a spicy long lasting finish due to its high viscosity as well.
