Agave Cuishe is a rare, wild agave like its Karwinskii relatives Madre-cuishe and Barril.  It grows in a cylindrical, stalk-shaped piña, with leaves spreading at the top. It’s often slightly smaller than Madre-cuishe, and yields intensely flavored mezcal with high minerality and spice notes. It’s important to note, however, that Cuish mezcals coming from the Santa Catarina Minas area may use this name for an agave rhodacantha similar to agave Mexicano.
