This Ocho Barbados Rum finished tequila is a limited edition Añejo expression from Ocho, which brings together rum and Tequila in one awesome spirit! Initially, the Tequila was aged in American white oak for a year before it was whacked into a French oak cask which previously held Plantation 2002 Barbados Rum for three months. The agave freshness is accompanied by tropical fruit and dark chocolate for a wonderfully complex sipping tipple.
Ocho tequila is the result of un-parrelled attention to detail in every step of the production process. Over-ripe agaves are hand selected from single estate plantations which gives the master distiller, Carlos Camarena, full control over the aroma and flavour profile of the end product. The results speak for themselves.
AROMA: Initial round rum note wrapped in light oak and spice. Dried fruit: citron and apricot. Fragrant fruitiness, subdued perfume aromas, and an appealing muted sour note. A touch of vanilla and ginger. Everything here is singing in tune.
TASTE: Cantaloupe, tropical fruits and agave richness. Grilled pineapple basted with melted butter, dark brown sugar and sweet jerk spices. Some pepper heat and tannins play on the back palate on the finish.
ENJOY: For those looking for something extra special.
