Distilled from a blend of agaves and produced with Wild Boar, this Pechuga style destilado is beyond interesting. Distilled by Hernan Hernandez Escot in Michoacan for La Luna Mezcal.
Vibrant and spritely on the nose. Celery salt, earthy, quite a bit of minerality. Fruity and rich.
Powerful and complex on the palate. Sweet cream, notes of fuji apple, honey, toffee and some slate. Nice presence on the palate, proof feels right.
Long finish, savory and complex. Really rests on the back palate, hanging on for quite some time. Ash, a big hit of smoke, cream, lemon zest and toffee see this expression out.
Interesting and unique, this is complex and extremely drinkable. Beyond the novelty of the boar pechuga aspect, the pure drinkability of this bottling is notable, and I love how expressive and powerful the finish is.
