Siembra Azul Anejo Tequila (750ml)
Siembra Azul tequilas are the product of industry veteran David Suro, who has been working in the tequila business for thirty years. He contracts his Siembra Azul tequila from the Vivanco family distillery in Arandas, otherwise known as NOM 1414 (the same as the ArteNOM reposado and Gran Dovejo tequila). I think our best tequilas at K&L are from Feliciano Vivanco, but it seems that David took his production methods to the extreme, specifying even the type of jima from the agave production - the process in which the penca (the agave leaves) are pulled from the ground. David is a big believer in using the jima to control the sweetness, bitterness, and ultimately the flavor of each tequila. Aged entirely in new oak, the anejo is rich, round, yet spicy and traditional. I think it's the best anejo we carry and also one of the most approachable.
