Cascahuin "Tahona" Blanco Tequila (750ml)

SKU #1406810

The Cascahuin Distillery is one of the most traditional and high-quality operations in the lowlands of Tequila. The name translates to "mountain of light," a reference to the mountain outside the town where it's located, El Arenal, which seems to attract lighting in every storm. Built in 1904 by the Rosales Family, not a lot has changed since then. They did replace their traditional tahona press with a roller mill in the 1980s, but recently reintroduced a tahona to the process to create a truly traditional tequila. This is the first release made with this old process and creates an exceptional product in the most traditional manner. 100% lowland agave, roasted in traditional brick ovens. Pressed on their new electric tahona wheel and fermented with bagasse in traditional ceramic vessels. Long, slow to proof distillation on tiny copper pots, this is one of the purest most traditional expressions of lowland tequila on the market. The gorgeous aromas of roast cucurbita, deep earthy spice and citrus waft from the glass. Texturally rich and highly complex on the palate, this should be considered the benchmark lowland tequila from which all others should be compared.

Cascahuin has been one of my favorite producers in tequila since I first sipped tasted their entry level offerings years ago. Their traditional process creates spirits leaps and bounds ahead of most competitors in terms of quality and flavor. Effortlessly balanced and expressive, this entirely tahona-pressed bottling in particular exhibits everything that most blanco tequilas aspire to be. Rustic aromas of dusty herbs and dry earth instantly evoke the region from which this hails. The taste is unbelievably refined, with pure agave sweetness taking center stage, supported by fresh white pepper and chamomile. The finish shows darker fruit tones and a satisfying earthy counterpoint to the ethereal flavors up front. A lingering hint of roasted meat makes this endlessly satisfying to drink. Purists should always have this on the shelf, and those looking to take a step up in the category should look no further.
