  • Intro:

    This Madre Cuishe is harvested at 15 years old and distilled twice on copper by Don Enrique Hernandez. Much like the Tobala, this should be an interesting expression as I'm a fan of wild agave. Let's get to it.

  • Nose:

    Pungent fresh grass, basil, pepper, bell pepper and jalapeno. Intense and vegetal, smells like rain is on the way. Lightly smoky.

  • Taste:

    Sweet and creamy - a total 180 from the nose. Cracked pepper, rising bread, some really nice charcoal and minerality. Faint jalapeno pepper on the back palate with some ash. Faint prick of heat.

  • Finish:

    Medium in length, more smoky than sweet here with the vegetal qualities giving way to more ash and pepper.

  • Overall:

    I like this, the change from nose to palate is just bonkers, but the finish was a little pedestrian in comparison. Not a big flaw at all, but I have to give the nod to the Tobala here. This is very good mezcal, for the record, and Im especially fond of that rainwater note on the nose.
