About this mezcal

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.

Mezcalera: Berta Vazquez, Lot#CH1-E2001US 46.42% abv
Have tasted a couple other mezcals from Berta and enjoyed them quite a bit. Her Rezpiral Espadin also comes highly recommended. This espadin was sweet and luscious. Flavors of musty grape, saltwater taffy, then at the backend some minerality, spice, and heat. Wow, very enjoyable. This bottle went so fast, like her other espadin from Rezpiral.
Very light smoke, has a floral almost botanical note followed by blue cheese and berries
Really enjoyable and approachable. No smoke on the nose but a subtle ashy taste. A lot of lime and citrus on the nose and palate and very smooth.
Fresh and a little bit of smoke on the nose.
On the palate I find lime, mint and citrus. Even less smoke than on the nose. Nice Espadin, not a bad sip, just not spezial.
Minty nose, with light smoke. Quite delicate flavours, good minerality, a bit canola and slightly viscous, red berries, a touch of green bell peppers.
Personally to me this is one of my most favourite and well-balanced Espadins I have tasted so far.
RGO-E2001US/2019/49.54%. Canada mints and peppermint leaves on the nose. Also a slight aroma of Pepto. The palate is not super complex. There’s some heat on this but it doesn’t overpower notes of chalky minerals, olive oil, fresh peppermint, and canola.

Nose – Grape candy powder. Slight smoky creaminess.
Palate – Sweetness is too dialed back and there is a metallic aspect – it’s like sipping diluted sugar water out of a stainless steel cup. Finish is grassy with a nice white pepper heat and smoky finish.
First sips are a bit like “spicy” peppermint toothpaste. There is a coriander and black tea note. A bit dry and hot on the palate with a white pepper note (as Rakhal mentions). Once you settle in there is some minerality. Tad bit of fruit candy on the finish. Wouldn’t grab a whole bottle but wouldn’t turn down a sip and I could see it getting better as the night went on. The higher proof at 49.54% is definitely nice. The price seems to sit around $75 USD for a 750ml bottle – hopefully the mezcalero is getting paid accordingly. This version was produced by Mezcalero Celso Luis Santiago in San Pedro Quiatoni. Batch RGO-E2001US, distilled in 2019.

Sweet and viscous – coats the tongue nicely. Lots of sweet candy notes, namely Swedish fish. Red berries, faint licorice. Then the smoke. Ashy wood smoke, faint plastic. Some minerals.
This is all over the place. That nose is insane, but I’m really not a huge fan of the one noted finish. It’s good, but man, it could have been really great.

Lots going in here. The nose is not as intense as the ABV would have one think. Full of sweetness and baking spices and hints of orange. Upon taste the mouth feel is intense coating everything. Sweet with some lactose notes on the front amd the outbreath retains that caramel baked good sweetness. Overall a real pleasant after work sipper.
SBG-E1601. Floral and mineral with white pepper spice and something metallic, like cold steel. I like it.

Distilled : 2016
Lote : SBG-E1601C
NOSE : Very soft nose with a lot going on. Floral, elegant and a little tequila grassiness sitting on a bed of hay.
TASTE : sweet flowers, creamy and buttery.
FINISH : fleeting with sweet smoke.
Very subtle mezcal with a underlying complexity
Very slick and smooth with a brilliant creamy texture. Everything about this mezcal is delicate and incredibly well balanced which makes it such a wonderful sipper and a great introduction to the wonders of mezcal!
Light bodied with a lovely creaminess and round flavours, balanced perfectly between smoke and earth, slight hints of jalapeno/blue cheese can be detected in the background
Lot: SBG-E1501 made by maestro Panfilo Hernndez Reyes at San Baltazar de Guelavila in 2015. A nice fresh floral smell and taste with hints op mint. A little alcohol sting but a fine mezcal. I enjoy sipping this but it does not have a strong finish. It makes for easy sipping and danger of keep pouring it. More a mezcal for on the go, if such a thing exists…
