Tasting Notes and Technical Description:
This mezcal greets the eye with crystalline clarity, an indicator of its pure distillation process. Its luminescent glow reflects the artisanal craftsmanship involved in its creation.
Banhez Pechuga de Pavo Mezcal opens with smoky notes that quickly evolve to reveal a complex arrangement of herbal, vegetal, and meaty nuances. The "Pechuga de Pavo" designation means that a turkey breast (pechuga de pavo) has been suspended in the still during the third distillation, imbuing the mezcal with an unforgettable aroma that includes hints of spiced fowl and seasonal fruits.
This mezcal does not disappoint in its delivery of complexity and balance. The initial sip reveals a harmonious blend of agave sweetness and smoky depth. As the liquid explores the palate, notes of roasted turkey, raisins, and a potpourri of herbs and spices reveal themselves. The integration of the turkey breast during distillation adds a delicate meatiness, without overwhelming the inherent flavors of the agave.
The finish is both lingering and luxurious. Smoky and spicy elements persist but are joined by softer notes of dried fruit and a subtle saltiness, offering a kaleidoscopic taste experience.
Despite its complexity, the mezcal’s mouthfeel remains smooth and silky. Its balanced ABV allows for a full-bodied experience that doesn't overwhelm the senses but rather invites thoughtful sipping.

As with most Pechuga mezcals, availability is limited due to the labor-intensive process of production. We advise enthusiasts to acquire this distinctive bottle while stocks last.

With its incorporation of turkey breast in the distillation process, it delivers a flavor profile that is as unique as it is harmonious, truly an experiential sip for any serious mezcal or spirits aficionado. It is with immense pride that we at Third Base Market & Spirits offer this bottle for your discerning consideration.
