Madre Cuishe can be translated as “Mother Agave”. It owes her title to a biological phenomenon, which lets her produce seeds that develop into numerous agave varieties, for example Tobalá. Agave Madre Cuishe is typically harvested after 12 to 15 years and usually grows in lower altitudes with hot climate, which provide earthy, mineral notes.
Topanito Mezcal Artesanal 100% Madre Cuishe exhibits a very mild nose with earthy minerality and a touch of mango. Mild freshness, a bit of salt and green paprika meet hints of olives as well as parmesan on the palate, leading to an earthy finish.
Despite its massive, rough and robust character, Madre Cuishe tends to bring out the most elegant mezcals of all.
