About this mezcal

Cuish Madrecuishe was distilled in March 2020 by Hermogenes Vasquez in San Luis Amatlan, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca, Mexico. The harvested agaves were cooked in an underground stone-lined oven, milled by a desgarradora (shredder), naturally fermented in Montezuma Cypress vats, and twice distilled in copper pots. Lot number: HBG-MDR-02.

Had a bottle of this with friends last Friday. At first it seemed a little softer than I normally like, but then (as is often the case) it started tasting better. In fact I could taste the underlying beauty straight through the cigar I was smoking.

THEN I notice who the Maestro Mezcalero was: Hermogenes Vasquez Garcia! Mogen, one of my all-time favorite maestros!

I’m told by a friend who works with Mogen that this was a cold blend of two different Madrecuixes made within a couple of weeks of each other. Really lovely.

Batch number is written and hard to read. Looks like Lote: H86-MOR-04

The more I sipped with Madrecuishe bottle the more I enjoyed it. Has a great grassy notes with a minerality on the tongue that lingers. Its a very soft 48% which is nice

Nose: Hard citrus candy. Slight bit of cream corn.

Palate: A hint of cheesecake sweetness. Lime zest. Peppermint heat. Long, sweet and warm finish. Very light smoke and saline aftertaste.
