Cinco Sentidos Tobala Enterrado Mezcal
Distilled in 2019 and buried in a demijohn below ground for 25 months, this is Atenogene’s Tobala Enterrado.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, it’s a wild cornucopia of fresh fruit, strawberries and cream, honey, rock candy and a touch of creamed corn. Peppery and mineral forward on the palate again, this has a noticeable uptick in sweetness, with the savory pepper holding steady. Lime zest, a touch of cider vinegar once more, creamy sweetness, orange peel, clay and a bit of limestone come through. Long finish, sweet and fruity driven with just a touch of ash, driven by minerality and cotton candy
