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 allowed it to age for 4 years in American white oak before transferring it to glass in 2000 to prevent over oaking. There it has mellowed for more than a decade. This juice was once used only to add oaky character to underwhelming anejos but later distillery began selling it and it remained a collector's secret until its arrival in the U.S. in 2014. Now, it is a living legend. Absolutely decadent stuff and ultra limited.
