Bozal artesanal Madrecuishe Single Maguey Mezcal
On the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca, Guerrero and Durango varieties of agave, indigenous to the region, grow wild and are heavily sought after by the local mezcaleros. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined. Because we at bozal believe that something wild produces a far richer spirit.
MadMadrecuishe 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.
