Còdigo 1530 K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Anejo Tequila (750ml)

SKU #1337289

Since its launch into the California market about a year ago, Còdigo has been our top-selling Tequila brand at K&L for a good reason! It's flavor-profile is in line with what today's drinker wants: the spirit is clean, well-made, high in quality, without additives, yet smooth and refined on the palate with richness and weight. It speaks to any Tequila fan, expert or novice. Còdigo 1530 started as a private recipe tequila that had been contracted by a family in Los Cabos for almost a decade, before finally becoming a commercial product in the U.S. Made at NOM 1500 by Tequileria las Juntas, the product was nameless for many years, existing solely as a home brand for family members and friends. Because of our relationship and success with Còdigo thus far, we worked together to do a private barrel edition of the Añejo, available only at K&L. Of the five Tequila expressions available from Còdigo, the Añejo is the one that really showcases the quality of the brand due to its year-long maturation in French oak ex-wine casks. As a result, it's full of that exotic oak spice that only French oak can exert, and the wine influence acts something like a mild sherry note, adding a little hint of chewiness that whisky fans tend to really enjoy. It's a high end Añejo tequila, but it's one that absolutely delivers on all fronts. This single cask expression is rich and supple on the palate with agave notes of savory citrus accented and lifted by the French oak flavors of sweet spice.

This has a pure sweet agave fruit core, with cinnamon and vanilla integrated seamlessly into the fruit. There’s a hint of a smoke, minerals and guava that give the spicy profile added complexity. Incredibly smooth and easy-sipping, don’t use this one for margaritas.

This tasty K&L single barrel is back! How can a single barrel “be back”? Well, it’s kind of a long story, but the end result is that this tasty tequila certainly is from the same single barrel our store acquired a year ago and we have roughly 90 bottles. The spirit has rich scents of baking spices with agave along with some bright spicy punch to it and a solid oak presence. The oak doesn’t dominate on the nose or the palate like with many anejos. In that respect and others, this barrel of Codiga is lighter than a lot anejos out there (a positive in my opinion) with soft notes of vanilla cookies, cinnamon zip, and a long finish with the oak gently easing back in.

I'm always amazed by the "we found some more of that in the warehouse" story. It gets told a lot and if you've never done inventory, it feels like BS. But as someone who has counted inventory every 3 months for 4 years now I know it happens, usually at K&L it's just a bottle or two. Maybe a full case occasionally that turns up during the count. However, every once in a while, in the behemoth warehouses of distributors, stacks of product can hide for a few inventory cycles. When our barrel of Codigo Anejo landed last December we were surprised that the number of cases it yielded was so low, but chalked it up to evaporation. Turns out 90 bottles of our precious Tequila resurfaced in our distributors latest inventory cycle! This is certainly the last shot at this barrel. If you're one of the many who has lamented the fact you finished your bottle months ago, now is your chance. The nose is incredible, citrus abounds, a gentle pepper nibbles through the layers of complex oak. Vanilla and spice dance on the palate. It's supremely easy drinking, rich and flavorful, and despite being in barrel for so long, it still has a distinct fresh agave flavor.

This single barrel is pure, delicious and pretty. It has beautiful citrus aromas. In the mouth it is soft with citrus and pepper notes. The aging in wood seems to have softened the spirit but does not dominate with caramel flavors.

I reached out to Codigo for a single cask of anejo because I knew if I could find the right barrel and negotiate the right price, we could introduce our customers to the NEXT GREAT $100 TEQUILA. The Codigo is an updated and better version of Don Julio 1942, a bellwether Tequila that has for over a decade been the go-to gift bottle for those looking to present a loved one or friend with Mexico's finest distillate. This single cask of Codigo smashes that paradigm wide open, bringing all the smooth-textured, rich oak of a classic anejo, but with none of the sticky-sweet viscosity. It's loaded with decadent flavors, notes of chocolate, citrus peel, and exotic spice, but it's still clean and spicy on the finish. Simply put, it's a 100% pure expression of Tequila that tastes luxurious while maintaining its roots in classic production. I'm just sad we don't have more of it. It's going to be a HUGE hit.
