Description: Cinco Sentidos Pechuga de Mole Poblano is made with agave Espadilla that is cooked underground for 4 days. Then stone-mashed and fermented in rawhide with spring water. Distilled in a Filipino hybrid still (clay-wood-copper) by master distiller, Marcelo Luna. Before the second distillation, the "melaza" is married with cooked wild chicken (Pechuga) and Mole Poblano to create a unique flavor profile that is delicious and unforgetable. The mole that is used is made from chocolate, bananas, wild apples, Ancho chile, Mulato chile, cumin, cloves, cinnamon, almonds, and sesame seeds. This is a very special mezcal that sees limited production.
