Tequila Tapatio Añejo Tequila (1L)
This 75-year-old brand, from the same distillery that also makes El Tesoro, has finally arrived in the U.S. The añejo expression has a pale straw color and distinctly sweet vanilla and juicy pear notes, tinged with bell pepper and jalapeño, and a bit of cinnamon sizzle. (KN)

Tapatio, popular in Mexico for 75 years, has finally made its way to US shelves. Made at La Alteña distillery from estate-grown blue agave from the Arandas highlands of Jalisco by master distiller Carlos Camarena, this Tequila is renowned for delivering luscious agave flavor at a great price. ...After 18 months in used Bourbon casks, the Añejo emerges pungent with dark-roast agave, brown sugar, lime zest and heavy vanilla tones—but not so much so as to mask complex notes like cacao and dried chile.
