Tequila Tapatio Excelencia Anejo Tequila 1L
The oldest expression from Carlos Camarena's Tapatio brand is finally available stateside. Rich and butterscotchy and with hints of black pepper and citrus. Distilled exclusively from perfectly matured agave at the famous La Altena distillery in Arandas. When they tell you how this stuff was made it just boggles the mind. Distilled in 1996, the distillery kept the spirit in glass for 13 years before allowing it to age for 4 years in American white oak. I still don't understand why they would ever do that, but it tastes so good, they must be doing something right. This bottling was once a distillery exclusive and a collector's secret until its arrival in the U.S. last year. Now, it is a living legend. Absolutely decadent stuff and ultra limited. Only 20 cases imported in 2014.
