About this mezcal
Casta Tribal Ensamble 203 is made with 12 year old Maguey Cuishe (Agave Karwinskii) and 8 year old Maguey Espadín (Agave Angustifolia). This mezcal is produced by two different maestro mezcaleros, José Diaz and Cipriano Hernandez. Check your bottle for details on which producer made that specific batch. Jose Diaz is from Porfirio Diaz’s Miahuatlan region, where he is the heir to his family’s Mezcal heritage. Cipriano has his palenque in the Salinas Municipality of Ejutla.
Casta Tribal Mezcal
Casta Tribal Mezcal bottles artisanal ensambles. With the fast growth of the mezcal industry, finding ways to protect the supply and biodiversity of the raw material (agave) is becoming increasingly important. That is why Casta Tribal decided to produce mostly Ensambles featuring their favorite wild agaves: Tobala, Tepeztate, Cuishe, and Madre Cuishe. Their mezcales are ensambles of harvested and wild agaves, decreasing the pressure on the rare and sometimes endangered species.

On the nose freshly roasted agave, acetone and wet gravel.
The palate it’s clean but pretty thin. An ensamble that lacks extraction. It’s thin and short with some warmth (only 40%). I got this at a good discount and such would be useful for mixed drinks. Otherwise, a mezcal sipper would not be impressed.
Let’s go with 3.25*
