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

SKU #1443830

Còdigo is the most popular tequila producer we carry at K&L, and for good reason. They set themselves apart in several ways. For starters, they only use "extra maduro" or "overly mature" agave for their tequila. These extremely ripe agaves make a rich and flavorful tequila with a luscious texture and intensity of fruit that is rarely found from larger producers who can't get enough quality agave to support their production levels. The second major difference in Còdigo's tequilas is their use of oak. They only age in Napa Cabernet barrels, not used bourbon barrels like the majority of tequila producers. They work exclusively with a single producer on Howell Mountain in Napa for their barrels and therefore receive only the finest French oak. The beauty of this arrangement can be seen on full display in our single barrel of añejo. Tropical fruits abound. The natural black pepper spice of the agave flourishes and then melts into the background amidst pineapples, bananas, mangos, and papaya. A hint of red fruit from the Cabernet barrels makes an appearance as does the French oak, subtle from previous use. For any tequila lover, this is a must have bottle.

This was a fairly unique barrel, I’m still organizing my thoughts around it. Aroma-wise it was one of the more herbal anejo’s I’ve had. The first thing I thought about when nosing this glass was the mouthwash my dentist uses, a much more subtle mint aroma than Listerine but still had that quality about it. I also got pine sap, star anise, cinnamon bark, and a hint of bubble gum underneath it all. On the palate it was herbal and sweet, with notes of dulce de leche, Christmas spices, and peppermint. The finish was long with a white pepper spice and a strong oak presence.

Truth be told, I don't usually crave Anejo Tequila. I find that the barrel often dominates the base spirit, and some of them are frankly cloying to my tastebuds. This new single barrel we got of Codigo is a wonderful exception for me. This tequila is not dominated by flavors of caramel, wood, or Bourbon notes like many Anejos. Instead, we have in our glass a nice array of spices, soft wood aromas, and excellent agave character. The woody elements are reminiscent of cedar, pine, and cigar box. I pick up bold pepper notes, cayenne, and mace. There's also still a touch of fruitiness and something like menthol and other herbs coming through as well. If you're looking for an Anejo that's off the beaten path and is elegant yet still robust, then this is for you.

Calling all Don Julio 1942 fans! If you love agave spirits with weight, texture, sweet fruit, and exotic spice, look no further. While 1942 set the standard for luxury Tequila when it was released nearly 2 decades ago, today it comes across a touch sweet for the modern palate. Codigo on the other hand presents a very similar luxury feel and luscious texture without any of the cloying agave syrup finish. Made from ultra ripe agaves and aged in the finest Napa Cabernet French oak barrels this single cask of anejo offers a heady blend of tropical fruits and exotic spices unlike anything else on our shelf. The pineapple and banana upfront fruit are robust yet perfectly balanced by cinnamon, pepper, allspice, and a hint of tannin and cassis from the red wine component. I believe this is our 3rd or 4th barrel of Anejo we've brought in from Codigo, and it's by far the best we've ever seen.
