5 Sentidos Chino is an exclusive bottling for the Bien Trucha Group. It is the first batch made by maestro mezcalero Jose Ines Vieyra. Maestro Jose made this batch from wild-harvested maguey Chino (agave Cupreata), which were roasted underground in a conical oven with encino and tepehuaje firewood for six days. After the roast, the agaves were crushed by a mechanized mill. The resulting mash was allowed to ferment in underground wooden vats with spring water. Upon completing the fermentation, the mash was distilled with a Filipino or Tarasco still that is made from a copper boiling chamber with a condensing chamber made of wooden slats. The total production was just 300 liters in El Aguacatito, Michoacan in May 2018.
