Mezcal Bicuishe, La Medida

Mezcal Bicuishe, La Medida

La Medida Mezcal (“the measure”) is a collaborative brand created by Julián Vidal Gómez Rodríguez, who has been one of the unsung icons of Oaxacan mezcal for over 40 years. Alongside his son, Julián works in concert with several highly regarded mezcaleros around Oaxaca (including the enigmatic legend Don Celso, who co-founded the brand) to showcase a diverse range of wild and cultivated single-varietal bottlings.

Tasting Notes

Piney and fibrous, this is a beautiful example of one of the many subspecies of Agave karwinskii found around Oaxaca, though Bicuishe is a term less frequently used in commercial productions outside the district of Miahuatlán. Distilled twice using an alembic copper pot still with refrescadera (condenser) by maestro Antonio Cortés Aragón in the renowned southern Oaxaca municipality of Miahuatlán, this a distinct crowd pleaser; herbaceous and earthy, yet fresh and green, with subtle acidity and rounded angles, soft like the texture of wet clay.
