Review #1574 | Mezcal Review #110

Distiller: Antonio Cortes Aragon

Bottler: La Medida

Brand: La Medida


ABV: 46.35% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Sugar, rock candy, sesame seed bun and savory beef. Sweet, but also meaty. Weird. I like it.

Taste: 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.

Finish: Long, more smoky here with ash, a hint of clay, some pepper and light sulfur hanging out. The fruit is still there – namely blueberry and cantaloupe and helps to keep things in check. A hint of bubble gum as it wisps away.

Overall: 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.

Thanks for reading!
