Bruxo No. 2 Pechuga de Maguey Mezcal
Bruxo // Oaxaca, Mexico
When we think of Pechuga, which means "breast," we associate this style of mezcal with poultry. Bruxo's Pechuga, the work of maestro Pablo Garcia, is an unusual vegetarian creation in which the roasted maguey heart is infused in the mezcal itself for a bolder agave flavor profile. The base spirit is a blend of espadín and wild (barril) varietals.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"This is a Pechuga for the true agave lover - full-bodied, full-flavored and full-on! It's at once floral, chocolatey, sweet and spicy with a viscous texture that has a surprisingly clean finish. The only thing that might disappoint mezcal fans is there is very little smoke, but it makes up for that in saltiness and overall uniqueness."
