About this mezcal

La Medida Madrecuishe is made with cultivated maguey Madrecuishe. Though this agave is not typically cultivated for mezcal production, La Medida reports that it adapts well to cultivation and can withstand moderate droughts and frosts. It’s commonly used as a living fence around property or other crops. This agave is grown at 1,500 meters above sea level. It’s traditionally produced in San Luis Amatlán, Miahuatlán, 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.

Nose: That gorgeous candied cherry, vanilla, peanuts, minerality. Dragonfruit comes to, with other strawberry and pink fruits. Candied!

Palate: Watery entry, but nice agave flavor, complex, candied fruits, pops of citrus, cinnamon, floral, nice long finish.

Star of the show, and totally my style as well. Give me more proof :P.

Leather, sugarcane, mint. Maybe some Dr Pepper in there somewhere. Huge fan

Batch MLA-M1903US

Clay, pepper, rising sourdough, pepper and some cotton candy. The meaty savory note has sort of packed up and moved on, giving way to sweet, funky berry and clay notes. Pepper with a hint of cocktail onion.

This is really great also. This may be my favorite Madrecuishe (so far) and it’s no doubt the quality of the makers work here. Very impressed, as this is hitting all the right notes for me.

MIA-B1902. Every once in a while I taste a Mezcal that’s really nutty, I like this flavor a lot. This Madrecuixe had flavors of crushed peanuts, salted caramel and spearmint. Yum!

A mature and robust smoky mezcal with lots of spice and a peppery finish, reminiscent of being out in the woods on a cool morning

Papaya and vanilla on the nose. Starts dry and turns into soft green with hints of juniper
