About this destilado de agave

Refugio “Don Cuco” Calzada Hernández produces in the village of Teititlan de la Lima, Guerrero. Don Cuco comes from a revered mezcal-making family and has spent the last 20 years cultivating Papalote. He doesn’t shy away from lending his gregarious and playful personality to his production, wholly displayed in wondrous fashion with this Pechuga Guerrerense.

The process is very typical of the pechuga style of Guerrero. First, Don Cuco distills a batch of Papalote then adds 12 chickens, cinnamon, raisins, almonds and pineapple into the still on the second distillation. The nose is sparkly clean while the palate delivers an explosion of flavor. The entire experience when tasting this mezcal begs for further exploration on every sip.

Lot PCHGR. Bottle 54/80. Tasted this batch in Oaxaca as it was a Mexico-only release, but I also tasted the US release (different batch) a couple months ago. The US batch was somewhat underwhelming. I don’t recall exact flavor notes, but I thought it was just “OK.” This MX batch, however, is really nice. Herbal aromas mixing with scents of pineapple and chicken broth. The palate has notes of peanuts, caramel, rosemary, spearmint, and pine.
