The Rey Campero Cuishe mezcalero, Romulo Sanchez Parada, learned how to make mezcal from his dad and worked in the palenque until he was 20.  When the economy went bad and Mezcal was no longer a viable enterprise he emigrated north and worked in North Carolina. He returned to Mexico in 2003, gathered his family, and began making Mezcal again. Rey Campero Cuishe has a very clean, crisp nose with a nice fruit and mineral mixing with some heat on the finish.

    Thoughts: Meh? I’ll be sure to revisit but I’m glad I didn’t get a whole bottle. Karwinskiis are hard to do right, and this just bores me. Still a good brand always worth supporting, but this batch is a pass.

    The pallet is rich and oily with roasted agave coating the mouth. The orange/citrus notes picked up on the nose cut through to create a nice clean finish. Much more “roasty” than smokey. Like the Rey Campero Jabali, heat lingers after the sip.

    The nose contains a lot of citrus with a caramel sweetness and a clean, wet stone minerality. Very little smoke but a slight hint of roasted pepper and leather.

    Some bite to this. Slight sweet. I prefer the Madre Cuishe. I like this better than the Mexicano though.

    Rey Campero Cuishe 48.3% Lote DS008B-C? Appearance: Clear, decent legs with slow beads. Nose: Grilled [green] banana. Ashy, peppery, starchy. Good aromatics with some hazelnut, more banana, slight orange bitters, lemon pith, lime, minerals. Chamomile, light vanilla, cardamom, slight dried pepper (green, maybe some ancho). Maybe that vanilla is actually coffee. Air is helping a bit. Palate: Yea, karwinskii, dry but this does have some good sweetness. Not “wowing” me, really, slightly hot fini…

    Palate: Yea, karwinskii, dry but this does have some good sweetness. Not “wowing” me, really, slightly hot finish. Sides of my mouth are a little refreshed, retronasal is sweeter banana and white pepper. Slight caramelization. Finish could be longer. Off a suspicion, a splash of water was added, it helped a touch to bring out the lemon and make the banana less “Runtz” and more “grocery store”, both are acceptable to me.
