About this destilado de agave
Luneta Cuishe from Angelica Garcia Vazquez is produced in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca. Maestra mezcalera Angelica Garcia Vazquez distills her spirits at the same palenque as her mother-in-law, Berta Vazquez. She roasts her agaves in an underground earthen oven with mesquite and oak, mills them with a tahona, ferments them in cypress wood vats, and distills them twice in small copper pot stills.
Luneta bottles expressions that are made with a variety of wild and semi-cultivated agaves, in various states by different mezcaleros, each with distinct elaboration techniques yielding individual flavor profiles. Luneta believes that quality, not quantity, is what’s worth striving for. They value individuality, the beauty of imperfection that comes with hand made creations, and the people that bring unique perspectives to the world.

Anise and vermouth. Really strange profile for a cuishe. Maybe its my awful palate? Will try again

Sampling kit (50 mL) w/ ABV of 44.7%.
Nose – A heavy walnut note. Musty.
Palate – Violets. Black licorice twizzlers. Spearmint breathmint sweetness and heat. Aftertaste of peppermint mouthwash and charred oak. Only downside is it’s a bit thin. This is decent but I think a bit more ABV would help.
