Review #1583 | Mezcal Review #113

Distiller: Antonio Cortes Aragon

Bottler: La Medida

Brand: La Medida


ABV: 46.41% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Rainwater, crisp green grass freshly mowed, some bell pepper, snap pea, spinach, jalapeño pepper and chive. It’s the whole veggie aisle.

Taste: Sweet and rich here, tons of vanilla cream, agave syrup, a hint of nougat, and bell pepper. Almost a 180 from the nose. Some heat but not unreasonable. Some string bean on the back palate. Really crisp.

Finish: Long, peppery, vegetal and sweet. Clay, sprouts, snap pea and honey.

Overall: Wow, this is really interesting. Not my favorite Tep, but the complexity is undeniable.

Thanks for reading!
