Madrecuishe is part of the Karwinskii family of agaves. It thrives in dry climates and typically grows in a tall, cylindrical shape. Due to the agave’s dense core and low water content, mezcal made from Madrecuishe typically has high minerality with vegetal and floral notes.
The nose is complex with aromas of ripe jalepeño, cocoa and floral notes. A smooth palate introduces earthy flavors of beet and sweet potato, complemented by a sweet minerality and hints of pollen. Green vegetal notes and a slight capsicum spice linger on the finish.
