About this mezcal

La Medida Arroqueno is made with cultivated agave Arroqueno. This agave is harvested at 1,600 meters above sea level. It’s traditionally produced in San Luis Amatlán, Miahuatlan, Oaxaca.

La Medida Mezcal

Mezcales La Medida brings together more than 46 Oaxacan producers. Their mezcal is made in small palenques with over 450 years of tradition and culture. 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.

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
