About this mezcal

La Luna Pechuga de Jabali is produced by Mezcalero Hernan Hernandez Escot in Ex Hacienda Zacapendo, Indaparapeo, Michoacán, Mexico. This pechuga is a 50/50 ensamble, utilizing Maguey Bruto (Agave inaequidens) and Maguey Chino (Agave cupreata). The base mezcal was produced in the same manner as Hernan’s traditional ensamble: conic earth oven, fermentation in wood with natural airborne yeast, and distillation in a Filipino (Tarascan) still. This unique pechuga is made using jabali meat (wild boar) along with herbs and fruits including tejocote, epazote, avocado leaf, and avocado seed.

La Luna Mezcal

La Luna Mezcal is made in Etucuaro, Michoacan. Tucked away in this mountainous region is the municipality of Villa Madero, which is the home to the Perez Escot family and Destiladora Las Azucenas.  The family has been traditionally crafting mezcal on the same property since 1910 and is currently on their 4th generation of mezcaleros with Isidro Perez Escot training his son Amador at the moment.

This is a fun bottle with alot going on. Definitely picking up on fruity, earthy, and rich gamey flavors. This is just my initial rank, I want to revisit in a month and update.

Lote: 31
Nose – Prominent, squeezed lemon and lime citrus notes. Lime Jolly Rancher. Pork jerky in the background.

Palate – Viscous. Lemongrass. Wood grilled, thin cut pork. Lemonade. White pepper heat. Anise. Quite a herbal smokiness in the finish. Pretty good pechuga (I really like the refreshing, citrus aspect) although the meat component was a little subdued and herbal notes on the back nine were a bit heavy handed.

*I really wish more of the wild boar came through, I think it got lost with all the herbaceous and vegetal notes. Interesting sample, and unique.

Picked this up at Moreno’s while visiting Chicago recently. It’s, um, really special. Tons of herbal/spice notes up front, including some unfamiliar ones (which I presume come from things I’m not super familiar with, like avocado seeds and leaves); some sweet, some savory, all delicious. Can you perceive the boar? It certainly has a viscous mouthfeel and some ‘gamey’ flavors, so, maybe? In any event, it’s a super fun, unique, delicious mezcal. Don’t hesitate if you get the chance to try it.
