While barrel finishes are more popular in the whiskey world, they are beginning to become more popular with tequilas as well, and this tequila is a great example of a successful barrel-finished tequila.
TASTE: This is light-bodied, with a nice agave flavor accented by orange marmalade, minerality, oak, burnt toast and dark chocolate. The finish bring out more white pepper, poblano chile, oak and raisins to end things before a final, astringent note of raw lumber lifts off the palate.
BARREL: 11 months in American white oak and then French oak ex cognac barrels for a further 3 months
ENJOY: A special sipping tequila
