Aguas Mansas Cuishe Mezcal (750ml)
The wild Maguey cuishe (or cuixe) grows in a cylindrical, stalk-shaped piña, with spreading leaves. It’s often slightly smaller than Maguey madre-cuishe, and yields intensely flavoured mezcals noted for their mineral and spice notes. Depending on its locality, 'cuish' could refer to slightly different varieties, varying in colour, size and shape.
Sourcing magueys from the arid areas of the Tehuacán Valley and the Central Valleys, Maestro Mezcalero, Juan Hernández, produces this expression in tiny batches. In this case, around 60 bottles. 45% Alc./Vol. Very limited stocks.
Notes from the producer... AROMA: The nose is earthy, with deep notes of wild herbs and wet earth. TASTE: Intense flavours of rosemary, thyme and cloves.
