Yuu Baal Pechuga

Yuu Baal Pechuga gets its signature taste from the raw turkey breast that is hung in the still between the second and third distillation.

About this mezcal

Yuu Baal Pechuga is a traditional pechuga mezcal that is made with agave Espadin. Between the second and third distillation, a raw turkey breast is hung in the still and fresh fruits are added as well. This technique leaves this mezcal with a wide range of scents and tastes. It has a nose full of citrus, herbs, fruits, and spices, and tastes of orange, anis, pineapple, and mango. It’s velvety texture carries slight hints of turkey, cinnamon, and mango in the aftertaste.

Yuu Baal Mezcal

Mezcal Yuu Baal is a social enterprise that highlights the traditions of the native Oaxacan producers of mezcal. They pay close attention to detail on the complete process of production to ensure the mystical, the exotic, and the absolutely delightful taste is in every majestic drink. Grupo Yuu Baal is made up of producers in San Juan del Rio, San Luis del Rio Tlacolula and Miahuatlan, Oaxaca.

The quality of the maguey begins in the earth. This means that the complete cycle of production, including planting, cutting, and distillation are done manually, and all with absolute respect for the environment.

Batch YJ14-19, bottle 625/900.

Very pleasantly surprised. I have been trying random bottles that I can find on delivery apps during the pandemic lockdown, and this is perhaps my second favorite so far. My first sip tasted of gasoline. Once acclimated, I find it starts very smooth and light but with a peppery layer close behind and spice if you don’t let it rest on your tongue. I get notes of subtle fruit, black pepper, and sometimes vanilla at the beginning. At this price point I personally would use it as a sipper or for special cocktails for good friends. Its spice and pep may turn mezcal skeptics off a bit, but after the first sip I did not find it to be high on smoke.

I’ll be back for more.

Lots of nice spice on the nose. Very interesting and flavorful release from Yuu Baal. The flavors jump around from cinnamon to vanilla to peach to crack pepper. Not much meatiness here but this is a tasty pechuga nonetheless. Very reasonably priced too. Batch YJ18-16.

Batch YJ18-16. Bottle 495/1440. Lots of spices on the nose. Strong aromas of anise and coriander. This is also spicy with high herbal notes on the palate. This is a nice pechuga. I’m a fan.
