About This Item

Will Ship in the 1st Week of November!

OVERVIEW:

The Cazcanes team routinely inspects all of its tequila barrels for aroma and taste to determine if they are ready for bottling as they age, they aren't strictly looking at how much time has passed. When they find a barrel that stands out from the rest, it is earmarked for their single-barrel program.

This is one of two barrels hand-selected during one of these tastings by Rob Gerard from the Tequila Collective in late 2022.  Rob flew down to the distillery in Mexico and worked with the Cazcanes team, sampling 27 barrels of Reposado until ultimately selecting this barrel for its unique characteristics.

The Cazcanes team reworked this ex-bourbon barrel and charred it to a medium/heavy level. Next, they filled it with their award-winning Blanco tequila (made from Valle agave grown in volcanic soil littered with obsidian) at approximately 53% abv. The angels took their share, and four months later, the team bottled it at 50% or 100 proof making this a Cask Strength offering.

TASTING NOTES:

  • Aroma: Cooked agave, baking spice, pepper, citrus
  • Flavor: Cooked agave, cinnamon, baking spices, grapefruit, caramel, pepper, and minerality
