Did someone say tequila time? I mean just look at that unique bottle! Tequila Mandala was born keeping the good times in mind and it clearly shows. The Extra Añejo 100% De Agave is elegant with a great body courtesy 7 years of aging in French oak barrels. A smooth pour, it's got a lovely dark amber colour with intense fruity aromas, while the flavour is mildly sweet with hints of oak and vanilla. Perfect for shots or even as a base for nuanced cocktails. 📷 by @tequilamandala
It’s been a few months between tequila reviews, so here goes. Tapatio Excelencia Gran Reserva Extra Añejo @tequilatapatio has been on my wish list for a while, and the Little Lady came through with an excelencia holiday gift!
This is a superb extra añejo. Unique and complex on the nose with scents of agave, orange peel, peach, and oak. Flavor picks up most of the same, with heavier wood tones and a little pepper and caramel on the way down. Aged 4 years in oak barrels producing a rich dark color, but still retains its agave flavor and doesn’t get too sweet. This girl has nice legs too (retains its oily structure after all the aging; not watery). This is no entry level tequila, not in price or flavor profile. If you want sweet vanilla, this isn’t for you. If you’re ready to graduate to a more complex aged tequila, Tapatio is hard to beat.
Put simply, Añejo means “aged” for at least a year and less than three years.
We age our Añejo for 18 months in American white oak used bourbon barrels which offers smooth and delicately sweet flavors 🥃
Terroir - "a sense of place". From the ground to the glass.
#RepostSave @tequilaochousa with @repostsaveapp ・・・ Terroir is not just the soil in which the agave grows - it's many factors. From the climate, surrounding vegetation, elevation, etc... Just as Cabernet Sauvignon may taste different when grown in Napa, Sonoma, Oregon or Washington, so does the Blue Agave showcase distinctive differences of character and terroir.
A blend of premium anejo and extra anejo, extra-filtered for a superior finish.
Fine filtered to crystal clear.
Smooth woody notes, vanilla and caramel for a sweet, rich flavor.
A subtle hint of agave nectar for the smoothest finish possible.
Have you heard of Cristalino—the newest category of tequila? While it’s been gaining popularity in Mexico for years, it is just now becoming a phenomenon in North America. .
So what exactly is cristalino tequila? Basically it’s a clear añejo. Cristalino makers take an anejo (typically aged 1-3 years in oak barrels) and then filter it using charcoal filtration. This extra step removes the naturally occurring golden-brown hues, but protects the rich flavors from the barrel aging.
The result is a clear tequila that has the complexity and character of an añejo with the crisp, bright notes of a blanco. What do you think #tequilatribe ? Have you tried it? Sound appealing?
