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.

    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.

    Nose has subtle herbal notes but nice and honestly the rest is the same way, sweet flavors and smooth finish. Very drinkable!

    Lot: DS00 8A-C 48.3%abv Nose is very vegetal, charred zucchini, fruity with a touch of earthiness, citrus lime, banana, buttercream. Taste is more vegetal notes of roasted agave, banana, toffee, with mint on the back end along with an alcohol bite. Finish is dry and a bit chalky. This is really great but I do wish the finish was a bit longer. Still rock solid.

    Lot DS 004-C from Feb 2014. A very special Rey Campero! This is clean on the nose with a bit of flint. The palate is vegetal with floral notes of orange blossom and rose hip, and fresh vegetal notes of green pepper, mint, and buttery potatoes. Very good!

    Earth, wood, leather, vegetal notes, and a bit of pepper on the nose. The taste is the nice definition of a wild karwinskii mezcal: bright flavors of fruit and caramel. This is very approachable and supremely enjoyable. Lot DS004-C from Feb. 2014

    DS008B-C. Sweet and spicy. Caramel, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and brown sugar. Nice for sipping by the fire on a cold rainy night.

    DS007-C Sept 2016 692 / 1054 49.5% ABV. Yep, another really solid offering from Rey Campero. Every one I’ve had . . . never disappointed and if you ever see Parada’s Secretos de Yegole Coyote, don’t pass it up. It’s five star unobtanium. Drinking the Cuishe today with two more expensive Jolgorios from the Karwinskii family, the Barril and the Tobaziche. Definitely not the runt of the litter!

    Dec 4, 2018 – polished off the bottle last weekend with some friends. Went to restock, which is always a good sign. There were four or five left and one lone RC Jabali on the shelf for a few dollars more, so it got the nod today.
