Tasting Notes

La Medida mezcals are brought to us by one of the most important figures in Mezcal over the past half-century, Julián Vidal Gómez Rodriguez. And this exceptional espadin in produced by a brand co-founder and a master mezcalero in Rio Golea who already brought us one of the greatest espadins we have ever tasted, Don Celso. This mezcal has everything; sappy fruit, pineapple, herbs, minerality, savoury funk and a lush rich texture and body. This is no entry level run of the mill, this is liquid to be cherished by the drop.

Staff Pick Notes

Espadin is the most common type of agave being made into mezcal, and as a result the bottles that people really fiend after are the "cool", rare types: Tepeztate, which can take 20+yrs to mature. Tobala, which only grows in the shade of mountain oak trees like a rare truffle. It goes on. But this bottle, made from the humble Espadin, could easily go toe to toe with any of them. Made from all wild-growing Espadin in Rio Golea, San Pedro Quiatoni and harvested as high as 1,500 ft above sea level. This is a bottle with real mouthfeel-it has a natural richness and creaminess that makes it a pleasure to sip. Not as overtly smoky or green and vegetal as some Espadin, but keeps a roasty, charcoal-like note in with aromas of summer melons, eucalyptus, lime, and stony soil. A fantastic value, it shows you the power of terroir and craftsmanship.
