La Luna Ensamble destilado con Pechuga

The Schtick: 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.

Review #2028 | Mezcal Review #207

Distiller: Herman Hernandez Escot

Bottler: La Luna

Brand: La Luna


ABV: 48.51% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Vibrant and spritely on the nose. Celery salt, earthy, quite a bit of minerality. Fruity and rich.

Taste: 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.

Finish: 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.

Overall: 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.

Thanks for reading!
