About this mezcal

Lalocura Cuishe is made by Eduardo “Lalo” Angeles in Santa Catarina Minas. He mashes all of his cooked agave by hand with wooden mallets, and ferments in the open air using only natural yeasts. Santa Catarina Minas is known as one of the best places to find great clay pot distilled mezcal, and Lalo has quickly become renowned in the area. Similar to other producers in this area, the term Cuishe is used to describe an agave rhodacantha, which is what most other regions would call an agave Mexicano.

Lalocura Mezcal

Before starting Lalocura in 2014, Eduardo "Lalo" Ángeles spent years working as the fourth generation master mezcalero of his family’s brand Real Minero, where he combined a lifetime of working under his father, the late, great Don Lorenzo with a collegiate degree in agricultural engineering. Many Real Minero bottles from several years ago actually have Eduardo listed alongside his father as the master distiller. Lalocura's clay pot distilled mezcals have built a steady cult following over the last few years. People from around the world show up at the palenque in Santa Catarina Minas each day hoping to spend time listening to Lalo tell stories while they taste the 20+ expressions he has resting in glass at any given time. If you like clay pot distilled mezcal and you like Real Minero, it's highly recommended that you find some Lalocura.

Ripe bananas and creme brûlée that transitions into wet leaves and dirt after the first taste. I think it is the clay distillation coming through. Very enjoyable. Lot 08. 4-4.5 stars

Lot 08 CUS (?I can’t read the second part of this)

Took a dive into Lalo’s mezcal yesteday, had this after the Tobasiche and it did not disappoint, would need another taste to get into the flavor profile, but definitely turned me on to their mezcals, very well rounded. Also I’m curious if Cuishe and Mexicano are the same agave?
