The brand is run by Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who began working with mezcal over 40 years ago. Throughout his career he has worked with brands like Monte Alban, Benevá, and Del Maguey. He focuses heavily on mezcal’s mysticism and the traditional production methods that have been used for hundreds of years. Some of their mezcal is certified, while other releases go by “aguardiente de agave.” Each batch is different. Check your bottles for details.

The smell of this really fills the room, skittles — absolutely, and some grass, light smoke.


 Earthy and fruity, I get a kind of jelly bean cocktail, but also leather, pine, vanilla. Nicely balanced flavours. Well integrated alcohol, medium mouthfeel, medium aftertaste. Well worth a try.

Batch: MIA-A2002US
Nose – White pepper. Sugar water.

Palate – Hot n’ spicy! Mint leaves. Black peppercorn. Sugar in the Raw crystals. Wet ash. The spiciness of this is interesting but the sweet aspect is kinda bland.

MIA-1903US. 2019. Antonio Cortes Aragon. Big fruity nose. Aromas of Skittles, sweet cream, and lime. The palate has note so of dusty old books, leather, vanilla, cracked black pepper, and corn. This is solid.

Decent Arroqueño. Getting a s’mores vibe – bitter chocolate, dry graham crackers, and burnt sugar. There is a salty minerality here too. It is a bit light but also leaves a bit of a spice on the palate. There is a bit of raw sugarcane note as the palate warms up and warmth subsides. I’m enjoying this one. Seems like the price is quite reasonable as well. 46.29%, 2019, MIA-A1903US.

Earthy, mineral, a little bit of mint. This is good, some complexity, there’s some sweetness creeping in, vanilla, then a long grassy finish that reminds me of a less grassy Clande Red Sotol.

Batch MLA-A1903US

Thick on the palate. Rich with heather, creamy richness, vanilla bean, papaya, japaleno and a great pepper presence on the back palate – like cracked peppercorn and olive oil. Deliciously complex and rich.

Incredible arroqueno, in my opinion. This has everything I like and nothing that I don’t, and I’m off to buy a bottle.

MIA-A1902. Minty, with fresh pine needles, pine bark, and freshly turned earth. Nice.

Lotte: A1801 2017 Bottling 2018|47.1%

First time with Arroqueno and first time to sit with a bottle of La Medida brand.
Pretty heady on the initial with sweet peppermints really smacking me. Sharpness with a copper kick joined with earthy wood, it then settles into fruity sugars that lingers nicely turning really quite sweet! Wasn’t fond at first but left in glass for 20mins it seemed to smooth out and became more enjoyable.
A great 3.5 (Give it a 4 not to damage ratings!)

Lot MIA-A1801 2017 harvest, 2018 bottling. Antonio Cortes Aragon. This is really quite good. Very sweet up front with some minerality on the finish. It compared favorably, although not as good as an Alipus limited edition Arroqueno I have as well. Ordered this from amazon Mexico for delivery in Mexico along with more Papadiablo red label ensamble. It falls short of the Papadiablo black label Arroqueno by Don Beto, which is highly recommended.

A wonderfully light and fruity mezcal with lots of spicy notes and white pepper. The finish is subtle but lingering
