About this mezcal

Bozal Pechuga is made with agave Cupreata as a limited release from Mazatlan, Guerrero. After the second distillation a cooked chicken marinates with locally sourced fruits, chiles, citrus fruits, raisins, cinnamon and clove. After the chicken has fully marinated, it’s added into the third and final distillation.

Bozal Mezcal

Mezcal Bozal is a craft, artisan, handmade Mezcal. They celebrate the wild side of the Mezcal world and the wild agave used to produce such rich spirits. They use agave from the steep precarious hillsides of Oaxaca and Guerrero that are indigenous to the region. These varietals produce flavors that are exotically intense, with rich earth tones and savory smokiness. From the heart of the maguey these flavors are traditionally extracted to produce mezcal that is wildly refined.

Not the best but not the worst. I actually think I enjoyed this pour more when the bottle was freshly opened opposed to a few months in. Nothing overly exciting, just an interesting papalote Pechuga for a good price ($85)

No heat and not much of the flavors linger which is a letdown considering the ABV of about 47%. Nothing truly distinctive about this Pechuga – mellow flavors abound with some sweet citrus, spices, tropical, and sweet agave. For around $100 this just doesn’t deliver enough to warrant the investment. Nothing wrong with investing in a pour just not the bottle.

Medium mouth feel. No heat, lots of minerality and brine. Clay, pepper, scallions, sweet lemon zest. Big sweetness making an appearance, becoming quite bold.

Really nice – unique, tons of character and all of it is interesting.

Good but not great. This has some nice notes of varied spices, but it’s a bit thin in texture. I tasted this side by side with the Bozal Borrego and this was the weaker of the two. This is a decent Pechuga, but if both options are available, I’d recommend the Borrego over this.
