Madre Ensamble is Madre's first product, and features a blend of Cuishe and Espadin agaves. The unique blend of these two different agave varietals creates a balanced flavor profile with a subtle smokiness that is complemented by mineral notes, a hint of sage, and a floral finish. This mezcal is a great choice for both beginner and expert mezcal drinkers.
Summary: Madre Ensamble uses both Espadin and Cuishe agaves. Espadin, a close cousin of Tequila’s Blue Weber agave, is easily farmed and grows relatively quickly at 4-7 years before harvest. Cuishe, a wild varietal, approximately 14 years before harvest. While wild Cuishe agaves are more difficult to harvest, and makes Madre more challenging to produce, this unique agave adds dimensions of sweetness, botanicals and mineralogy that perfectly complement the smokier Espadin. (45% ABV)
Tasting notes: Subtle smoky notes, accentuated by a sweet earthy fragrance. Herbal notes follow through onto the palate with flavors of sage, minerals, and a lingering floral finish.
