La Medida Mezcal

Mezcal Tobasiche 'Chichicapam'

Mezcal Tobasiche, 'Chichicapam', La Medida
  • Maestra Mezcalera Berta Vasquez
  • Produced in San Baltazar Chichicapam, Oaxaca
  • 100% Tobasiche (Agave karwinskii)
  • Cooked in an earthen oven and milled using tahona
  • Fermented in open vats
  • Distilled twice on a copper pot still
  • Leaning into the vegetal notes of the variety, this batch offers a nose of pea sprouts and lightly burnt toast, the cheesy-nutty aroma of nutritional yeast, and a bit of damp sidewalk. On the palate, green beans and walnut shells roll loose among toasted coconut and toasted cinnamon, fennel seed, and dried apricot. Like having a tropical cocktail while sitting in an herb garden.
  • 46% ABV

A rare treat, the Agave karwinskii batches from Berta Vasquez are widely admired among mezcal aficionados as exceptional examples of the species—in particular, her work with the tall and slender Tobasiche.
