About this destilado de agave

The Agave Mixtape Lalo Pechuga was produced by famed maestro mezcalero Lalo Angeles. This was released as part of Mixtape Vol. 9, Side A in December of 2022. While many brands are following consumers’ enthusiasm for pechugas made with exotic ingredients and animals, Lalo continues to work with a recipe that has been produced in Santa Catarina Minas for the last 300 years. Unlike most pechugas, which use maguey Espadín as a base, Lalo prefers to use a mezcla, typically a 50/50 of Tobasiche and Espadín.

Lot: Pechuga 2022-01 ABV: 48%
Nose – Dried apricot. Orange peels. Smoked chicken. Clay. Fruity and not over-spiced – great start.

Palate – Heavy on the anise that distracts me from a great pineapple fruitiness in the beginning. Good stuff in the middle, similar flavors to the aromas – apricot and roast chicken. Smoky clay throughout. A Sprite fizziness, orange peel and a tad soapy in the finish. Decent pechuga.. For some reason, I love almost all of Lalo’s expressions but his pechuga expressions just don’t hit the spot.
