  • Intro:

    This Cuixe is, unsurprisingly at this point, the handiwork of Oscar Hernandez, who distilled the batch on copper in Matatlan. Let's dive in. Day 6 of 7 in the Thank GaD mezcal mini series.

  • Nose:

    Sweet cream, rich pepper, pungent ash smoke, a clean minerality. Lots going on. Almost a hint of citrus tang.

  • Taste:

    Rich and sweet. Pepper first, followed by lots of confectioners sugar, and cream cheese frosting. Sweet with a mineral undertoe. Pepper, slate, some limestone almost are introduced to balance the sweets. Faint ash smoke on the back palate. Pretty complex.

  • Finish:

    Long, but gently and supple. Lots of complexity. Sweet, mango fruits. This is followed by pepper, lemon curd, honey, ash smoke and a faint cabbage/lettuce vegetable note. Really nice progression, too easy to drink.

  • Overall:

    This demonstrates something I wished the Tepeztate had - excellent balance. There is so much sweet cream, it'd be cloying if it weren't for the expert integration of the vegetable and mineral notes. This is really well done, a great expression to say the least.
