Pale amber color. Attractive, creamy, oaky aromas of caramelized tropical fruit, butterscotch and leather, mint and oregano, and toasted marshmallow with a thick, lively, dry-yet-fruity medium-to-full body and a tingling, intricate, long creamy cashew butter, steak seasoning, salted grapefruit peel, and roobois tea finish. An oak forward tequila to sip and ponder.

Añejo Tequila

Añejo ("old") Tequila is aged in wooden barrels (usually old Bourbon barrels) for a minimum of 12 months. The best-quality anejos are aged 18 months to three years for mixtos, and up to four years for 100% agaves. Aging Tequila for more than four years is a matter of controversy. Most Tequila producers oppose doing so because they feel that "excessive" oak aging will overwhelm the distinctive earthy and vegetal agave flavor notes.
