Don Amado Mezcal Pechuga 750ML
Don Amado Mezcal Pechuga 750ML - An autumn 'harvest bounty' mezcal, Don Amado Pechuga is a third distillation of our Don Amado Rústico, made with the addition of seasonal fruits, nuts, and spices, including apricots, wild criollo apples, hard, stubby bananas with clove, cinnamon, raisins, almonds, and walnuts.
A treasure of complexity that exhibits rich, bright fruit notes, roasted nuts, dark baking spice, wafting hints of clean smoke, fresh cinnamon, and stone fruits. Mature maguey flavors are woven throughout and never overwhelm, maintaining symmetry, balance, and depth, on through to a delicate finish of broad, exotic flavors and lingering tropical nuance in this uncommonly vegan pechuga.
- The nose has aromas of dried strawberry and pineapple, along with notes of tarragon and woodsy rosemary. This combination suggests a fruity and herbaceous profile, with a potential for a slight sweetness.
- On the palate, the fruitiness is the most prominent feature, with strong flavors of cherry, raisin, and pineapple. There are also undertones of cinnamon, adding a touch of spice to the mix. The herbal quality keeps the flavors refreshing and balanced, with a rich mouthfeel. The finish is powerful and long-lasting, with a clay flavor and texture, which could indicate that the spirit was aged in clay pots.
A sophisticated and complex spirit with a fruity and herbaceous profile, balanced by subtle spiciness and a rich mouthfeel.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
