Tapatio Excelencia Gran Reserva Extra Añejo Tequila is aged for 4 years in fresh (never used) deep charred American white oak barrels. To mix or even dillute this tequila with water or on the rocks would be considered be unforgivable. This tequila is comparable to the best whiskies or cognacs that exist in the market.
Appearance: Mahogany color, dark amber with reddish tones. Great body and clear presence of essential oils, which hang from the glass.
Aroma: Large concentration of vanilla, maple, caramel and apple, which perfectly complement the intense cooked agave, roasted peppers, cinnamon and spice aromas. If allowed to breath, it releases aromas of baked bread, sweet pea and delicate floral notes.
Palate: Fabulous intensity of flavor with all the aromatic elements perfectly delineated: intense cooked Agave, cake, spices, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla and caramel, nuts and light spices, all of which are assembled into a sumptuous whole, with the creamy taste of oak. A warm, rich, quite intricate and incredibly long finish. Wave after wave of flavors perfectly intermingled and quite complex.
Finish: A warm, rich, quite intricate and incredibly long finish. Wave after wave of flavors perfectly intermingled and quite complex.
