An elegant and savory mezcal, the cuishe has a herbacious and peppery aroma. Sandalwood, sage, and palo santo are standout notes, and its lighter body gives way to a dry, grassy finish.
The Cuishe varietal is unique because it is cooked with the trunk of the plant and takes about 1-3 days to ferment because it has a lower concentration of sugar. The Cuishe agave takes about 12 years to mature.
Because it is one of the tallest agaves, it is commonly used as a fence between neighboring fields.
