Review #1577 | Mezcal Review #111

Distiller: Antonio Cortes Aragon

Bottler: La Medida

Brand: La Medida


ABV: 46.37% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sweet cream, a plastic note, jalapeno and corn bread. Really interesting and complex.

Taste: 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.

Finish: Long on the finish – rich and complex. Ash, minerality, a sour fruit note that pairs so well. Papaya, mango, some honey, along with pepper, lemon curd and sourdough bread.

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

Thanks for reading!
