Don Mateo Pechuga is a pure sampling from Michoacan. It’s made with agave Cenizo, which makes it unique as most exported pechugas mezcals are made with agave Espadin. During the third distillation, Don Emilio’s wife adds her special recipe, which calls for chicken breast, deer meat, and a blend of select spices. This blend give the mezcal a fuller, richer taste. This mezcal has a nose of roasted agave, tropical fruits, citrus, earthy notes and spice. It has a great texture and weight on the palate.

    This is a spice forward pechuga with notes of green pepper, coffee, clove, and dried fruit. I’m enjoying it more after it has rested in the bottle for over a year. Overall I prefer the other mezcals from Emilio Vieyra. Lot 10 from September 2014.

    Lot 10 from Sept 2014. The aroma of this mezcal is similar to that of the Siembra Metl Cenizo, which is odd given the Pechuga element. I find this Pechuga is not as meaty as most other Pechugas out there. Some of the additional spices come through on the palate with notes of sweet rosemary, cinnamon, cardamom, menthol, and papaya. This doesn’t taste much like a traditional Pechuga, but it’s a very good mezcal.

    i have enjoyed other versions of this brand but this one was a let down.its ok but for the price,it should be much more.its drinkable and fairly smooth.it seems watered down and not much personality.the alto is very good as well as the cupreata.if the cost was about $40,it would get 3 stars.
