Tapatio Excelencia, Gran Reserva, Tequila Extra Anejo (Mexico) 750ML
Distillery Notes: "As the legend of Tapatio in the US spread and the range expanded, bartenders & tequila aficionados, who had visited La Alteña Distillery in Mexico, started asking for one other special release, the fabled Excelencia Gran Reserva Extra Añejo, one of the oldest tequilas on the market.
Could we get some for the US? Long story short, we were able to get our first 100-case allocation (Lot 1) in Dec 2013. It quickly sold out. Lot 2 arrived Feb 2016. Distilled in 2000 from 100% Estate grown agave, aged for 5 years in used Excelencia barrels, and an additional 10 years in 5-liter glass jugs. It’s one to enjoy neat, with aromas of caramel and eucalyptus, flavors of sandalwood, baking spices, citrus and herbal notes of sage and thyme."
Beverage Tasting Institute, 98 Points: "A superlative sipping tequila that combines elegant wood with rustic, authentic agave flavors; an outstanding spirit."
