Miahuatlán at its best : gentle, sweet, very well balanced. A great mezcal to start loving karwinskii.

I had a pour of this and enjoyed it thoroughly. Classic Karwinskii mineral-earthy flavors along with some sweet spice, clove, and a hint of bubblegum. I also enjoyed this particular US release batch more than the ones I’ve tried at the Cuish Mezcaleria.

Really nice Cuish from Cuish. I’ve tasted an agave Cuish mezcal at the Cuish mezcaleria in Oaxaca and wasn’t a big fan – you’d think the namesake agave would be awesome. However, this Cuish Cuish release is much more enjoyable. The aromas are amazing. There are some nice notes of dried fruit, grape juice, spearmint, and vanilla bean. If you enjoy agave Karwinskiis mezcals you will love this.

Had at Pujol, and the bought a bottle the next day at Sabra Dios in Mexico City. Perfectly balanced, juicy, and a dry type finish that doesnt linger too long. A treat
