  • Intro:

    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.

  • Nose:

    Minty, chive, onion, sour cream. Creamy and rich, ultimately savory on the nose.

  • Taste:

    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?

  • Finish:

    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!

  • Overall:

    This is wild, but too anise heavy to really make me fall head over magueys here.

  • Score:
