5 Diamantes Organic Mezcal
Cinco Diamantes Organic Mezcal is an overnight success four generations in the making. These handcrafted spirits are produced by Javier Bautista Olivera and his five daughters, therefore the brand Cinco Diamantes (Five Diamonds), [NOM 0119X] in Tlacolula, Oaxaca. While the Cinco Diamantes 12-month-old Reposado are genuinely praiseworthy, it’s the 5 Diamantes Añejo that’s so richly deserving of its critical acclaim. The super-premium entry is made entirely from the Espadín Agave and matured in charred American white oak barrels. And there it will remain for between 3 to 5 years until deemed ready by the maestro Mescalero.
“The 5 Diamantes Añejo is a highly sophisticated mezcal with a copper hue, a medium weight body and a distinctively spicy, fruity and smoky set of aromatics with light mint and caramel notes,” says the founder of Artisanal Mezcals in Nevada that imports exclusively the brand into the US. “The palate is a glorious array of vanilla, cherries, figs blueberries, butterscotch and cashews. The finish is long and smooth. Cinco Diamantes Añejo is an ideal mezcal to sip neat after a splendid meal.”
