Delfion Tobon Mejia
Distilled by Deflino Tobon Mejia for Cinco Sentidos as part of the La Coleccion Mixteca, this Pechuga takes a distilled wild papalote batch and conbines chicken, and many fruits - notable anise and cinnamon.
Minty, chive, onion, sour cream. Creamy and rich, ultimately savory on the nose.
Minty and interesting. There’s a richness here but the spice, mint and salinity lands weird for me. It’s hard not to equate this in similarity to mouthwash or something strange. Wintergreen candies?
Long finish, minty once more with loads of anise. Wild and interesting, and this is even more anise forward than something I thought was the pinnacle of Anise - Banhez’s pechua. Whew!
This is wild, but too anise heavy to really make me fall head over magueys here.
