Tasting Notes and Technical Description:

Visual Appearance:
Upon pouring, this mezcal reveals a crystal-clear clarity with a slightly viscous texture, indicative of its complex distillation process involving a chicken breast and a variety of spices—characteristic of "Pechuga" mezcals.

Nose (Aroma):
The nose opens up with the captivating aroma of mole spices, including nuances of chocolate, chili peppers, and a touch of nutmeg. Layered beneath these spice notes are the classic smoky and earthy aromas that are signature to mezcals.

Palate (Taste):
As you take a sip, your taste buds are greeted with a harmonious blend of flavors that mirror the nose. Traditional mole spices lead the way—cacao, cinnamon, and a bit of peppery heat—followed by the smoky and herbal notes of agave. The use of a chicken breast in the distillation process imparts a unique, velvety texture and depth of flavor.

The finish is incredibly balanced, with the smokiness and spicy heat tapering off into a delicate sweetness, leaving a hint of roasted nuts and chocolate on the palate. It's long-lasting, complex, and deeply satisfying.

The texture of this mezcal is exceptional—rich and oily, coating the palate in a way that makes each sip a complete sensory experience.
