Before the final distillation, chicken and mole poblano are added to create a unique flavor and mouthfeel. The mole that is used is made from chile ancho, chile mulato, chocolate, sesame seeds, almonds, peanuts, rosemary, and cumin. The first batch of this came to the US in 2017 and was just 193 bottles in size.

  • Overall:

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!
