Mezcal de Leyendas Oaxaca Cuishe

Categories ,

Cuishe is a member of the Karwinskii family, all of which grow tall and thin compared to their shorter, wider cousins. For this reason they are commonly used to form natural fencing. These mezcals are more rare to come across due to their longer maturation cycle and their unwillingness to domesticate. This mezcal is cooked in an agave roasting pit, processed with a mallet in a hollowed log, fermented in Mexican Cypress vats, and double-distilled in a copper alembic. Tasting notes skew smoky and spicy.
