Best and most unique Pechuga I’ve gotten my hands on. Extremely unique due to it having such a strong smell on the nose and in the taste. It smells like a raw chicken splattered with mole with flavors of chocolate, nuts, and other spices but it really is like eating a mole dish through a liquid. It may not be everyone’s favorite due to it’s strength in flavors, but it will definitely stand out as a great novelty item at the very least.

Struggling to rate this. It absolutely nails a mole flavored pechuga. Still, i guess I just prefer regular espadilla. 4.5/5

absolute bliss!very few spirits are sublime but this one fits the desciption!. the nose is rich with coco,spice,fresh baked bread and poblano.the entry is sweet with strong agave and the taste expands to include the mole and savory chicken.the poblano stands out and on the finish are notes of molasses and cinnamon.each of the flavors really stand out but are all balanced.the texture is like syrup.it is silky and the finish is long.i would give it 6 stars if possible!one of the best i have tasted!

very good, probablh underrating this purely because the mole is a bit overwhelming. i was six mezcals deep though and palate fatigue may be a factor. agave flavor was pretty overwhelmed by the delicious flavor of the mole. too straightforward in that sense. i prefer the elusive mysteries and nuances in something like the real minero pechuga. glad i didnt blind buy a bottle.

This is hands down the most flavorful Pechuga I’ve had the pleasure of tasting. The nose is savory sweet with notes of baking spices chocolate and ground peanuts, the palate gives way to a salty sweet decadent experience that goes for for minutes.The texture is oily and really complements everything going on here. This is #2 on my list after the Real Minero Pechuga!
