About this mezcal

Banhez Pechuga de Pavo is made with the addition of apples and other seasonal fruits. A Turkey breast (pechuga de pavo) is also strung in the still for the third and final distillation. This type of Pechuga is traditionally drunken during celebrations like a quinceañera, marriage, or other big life event. Pechuga is a festive, special drink. This Pechuga de Pavo has also been released with a label that simply states Banhez Pechuga.

Banhez has some great options but if you’re spending money on a pechuga style mezcal this is not the direction I would go. Overly spiced, minty, and gin like profile. Just too many other great options in this price point for mezcal that are far superior.

Very citrusy. Tangerine, sunny delight, tang, orange creamsicle, fabric softener, candy coated fennel seed, guava. A bit medicinal.

Very unique taste with licorice/anise. Very sweet with some orange peel, cream, and sage. Balanced smoke & not too hot. I like like the attempt here, but not sure I’d proactively go for it again.

Unlike any pechuga I’ve had, this spice bomb laced with licorice is undeniably unique. That said, I’m not the biggest fan. The more I drank this the more it became a very singular experience. The resemblance to absinthe was really bonkers.

Nose: Strong Apple, Pineapple, Guava, slight meat funk, light antiseptic.

Palate: Medium mouthfeel, but with a meaty texture that lasts. Heavy Apple, Guava, light meat funk, licorice, antiseptic.

Finish: Medium length, warm, apple, licorice, mango, light clean smoke.

I had to sit with this for awhile to figure out how I felt about it and its just fine. It has some good strong fruity flavors, that apple is delicious and very prominent as are some other fruits. What brings it down for me is this strong licorice/ antiseptic esque flavor that seems to dominate as an undertone to the whole experience. That might sounds good to you but this is a touch too weird for me.

By far my favorite pechuga so far. A lighter, fruity pechuga with turkey breast, pineapple, guava, plantain, etc. this pechuga is a steal for the price.

Glad I didn’t confuse this one with the classic Banhez Pechuga with chicken 😉 Was solid, from a while back, strong apple up front that was a little distracting from the agave.
