About this mezcal

La Herencia de Sanchez Pechuga de Codorniz is made with agave Espadin in Candelaria Yegole, Oaxaca. Unlike pechuga mezcal from most other producers, maestro mezcalero Romulo Sanchez Parada only distills this mezcal twice. After the first distillation, he adds raw pineapple, banana, and quail breasts (codorniz is Spanish for quail). The result is a pleasantly balanced pechuga that stands out from others with it’s unique blend of tropical fruit and use of quail.

La Herencia de Sánchez Mezcal

Romulo Sanchez Parada has been carrying on his family's traditional mezcal production in Candelaria Yegole, Oaxaca for years, and La Herencia de Sánchez is one of the brands that he uses to bottle and release the mezcal made at his palenque. The brand has been sold in Mexico for years, and people outside of Mexico may be more familiar with his other brand, Rey Campero, which is also made exclusively by him and his family.

Nice pechuga from Rey Campero. There are notes of bananas, dried peaches, allspice, and pepper. The finish is a bit dry. Quite approachable for those new to mezcals and pechuga mezcals. Lot D5006-PC from September 2017.

Lot DS006-PC from September 2017. It’s really interesting to taste Romulo’s take on a pechuga. I’ve been drinking Rey Campero for years and though there are similarities, this is quite unique from anything else I’ve tasted from him. The pineapple really stands out in this. I get a lot of it on the nose and a lot on the palate. The meatiness of the quail balances it nicely. The cross between the smoked quail and the strong pineapple citrus give this a serious tropical feeling that’s light and enjoyable.
