Mezcal Tobala, 'Chichicapam', 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

Based in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Berta Vasquez is one of Oaxaca’s most iconic maestra mezcaleras. Tobalá is among the most coveted varieties of maguey used to make mezcal. The tiny Tobalá agave, harvested wild at 10–15 years old, yields very low amounts of sugar (and thus, very small amounts of mezcal); it can take up to three plants to produce one bottle. After all that patience, and with Tobalá representing less than 3% of the agave grown in Oaxaca today, little wonder the mezcal is widely revered! 46.35% ABV
