About this mezcal

La Medida Bicuishe is made with Maguey Bicuishe (Agave karwinskii) which is harvested from a wild, jungle environment. This agave is harvested at 1,700 meters above sea level and takes 9-10 years to reach maturity. It’s traditionally produced in Santiago Matatlan, Tlacolula, Oaxaca.

Lot MIA-B1903US/2019/46.37%. Aromas of pepper, graphite, slate, sea salt, and eggplant. The palate has notes of raw honey, cantaloupe, and brown sugar. There’s a bit of heat. I typically expect quite a bit more complexity in a Bicuishe from Miahuatlan, but this is a bit thin and lacking.

Spicy fruit karwinskii notes. Juicy Fruit gum. Honeydew soda. 100% Bicuixe mezcals from Miahuatlan are always interesting. I’m enjoying it but it isn’t as complex as others I’ve tried. Batch MIA-B1903US from 2019. 46.37% ABV.

MIA-B1903US/2019/46.37%

Nose: Gentle, lots of roots, Miahuatlan bicuishe always gives me kinda marshmallow vibes and we’re not far off here. Hamburger wrapper, lots of minerality, mild kukicha or eccentric white teas… can’t quite place it. We’ll see if the palate is a little wetter than the nose.

Palate: Watery entry, a touch of that ash, but nicely complex. White pepper spice, woody finish.

A touch dry, the lower proof I think hurts here as well. Watery, on the eccentric and austere side. I’m usually ok with that,

Batch MLA-B1903US

Rich on the palate, savory and sweet. Cream, agave syrup, pepper and some papaya. Faint smoke on the back palate, hint of minerality and a tinge of ash.

This is a real beast of a bottle – it really keeps you guessing while tossing in new notes that really work together. Big fan.

MIA-M1902. Salty and spicy with notes of white pepper, graphite, and cucumber. The flavors were a bit dull and muddled, not very complex. Still good though.

Lots of papaya & vanilla on the nose. To me it has a dry start with hints of juniper before moving in to juicy green flavours with lingering oak. Gorgeous!
