About this destilado de agave

Gusto Historico Madrecuishe from Emanuel Ramos was produced in Miahuatlan, Oaxaca, a region known for it’s high population of Agave karwinskii (like this this maguey Madrecuishe). The community of Mengoli de Morelos where Emanuel and his father Victor live and work has a population of just under 200 people. They are related to the neighboring Cortes family via Victor’s wife (Emanuel’s mother), Cleotilde, whose sister Cesilia is married to Felipe.

ABV 49.1% Batch ER.04.21.MCX

Doing a side-by-side tasting with a madrecuixe from Cuish. Sweet and vegetal on the nose, and aromas of fall fruit (pears, apples, and persimmon). The flavors are sharp initially on the palate and then settle down to minerality, lemongrass, green tea, and candied sweetness (yams and sweet potatoes). The heat lingers nicely and the mouthfeel is a tad oily, creamy, and viscous. On the backend, there is a bit of astringency and citrus pith. Fantastic karwinskii, reminding me of why it is never a good thing to get to fixated on one agave, maestra/o, region, or brand. Have to keep rotating….
