About this mezcal

La Medida Tobasiche is made with agave Tobasiche in Miahuatlan de Porfirio Diaz, Oaxaca. While each batch may vary, at least one batch was made by Jose Diaz Bustamante. Jose cooks his agave in an underground pit oven, crushes the cooked agave with a tahona, ferments with open air yeasts in wooden vats, and distills in a copper refrescadera. Other batches may be produced by other mezcaleros depending on where they are purchased.

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 Number: MIA-TBS1803H
47.3% ABV

The nose on this mezcal is fairly subdued. There is some high-toned acidity and very bright, chalky minerality. A hint of dried corn husk, cooling spearmint, and tropical fruit hide underneath. On the palate, there is a burst of flavor. On occasion, the palate is dominated by lush tropical fruits and red berries. Today, the dried corn husk returns and evolves into earthy corn meal. The cooling spearmint gives way to eucalyptus and thyme. The fruit notes are playing nice in the background, and play nicely with the green notes on the finish. Ultimately, the earthiness outlasts all the other notes, and go on for quite some time.

This is my desert island bottle, at least for now. I first tried this mezcal at a La Medida tasting hosted at ATLA in NYC months ago. I was completely and utterly blown away by what I was tasting, and acquiring one of these EU-only releases became my top priority. Now that I have one in hand (albeit a different batch), I’ve come to appreciate how intense and constantly-evolving this mezcal is.
