Tequila Tapatío Añejo 750ML
Tequila Tapatío Añejo 750ML
Tequila Tapatío Añejo 750ML - We introduced the Añejo to the US simultaneously with the Reposado in 2013. A truly authentic handmade añejo distilled to strength and bottled without dilution to retain the true flavors of the spirit.
To make our Añejo, Agave Pinas are harvested by Jimadores, slowly baked for four days, then crushed to extract the Mosto. Next, fermented by an 80-year-old yeast culture, double-distilled in Tequilano Pot Stills, aged 18 months in used Jim Beam American oak barrels, then barely filtered and bottled.
- Appearance - Intense straw yellow color, slightly amber with golden flashes. Medium-bodied.
- Aroma - Sweet cooked agave, crème Brulée, vanilla, and caramel give way to subtle aromas of cinnamon, red pepper, and spices.
- Taste - Sweet and spicy. Cooked Agave, Cocoa, and vanilla combined with pepper, walnut, and some berries. Vegetables and Woody notes. A soft, silky, and very long finish with spices persisting on the back of the palate.
- Comments - A perfectly balanced tequila; is recommended neat or on the rocks to appreciate its complexity of flavors, but it also mixes very well.

What is the difference between Tequila & Mezcal?
Tequila is a type of mezcal, much like how scotch and bourbon are types of whiskey.
Tequila and mezcal are both types of agave-based spirits that are popular in Mexico, but there are some key differences between the two. Tequila is made exclusively from the blue agave plant, which is primarily grown in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, about 40 miles northwest of Guadalajara. Mezcal, on the other hand, can be made from any type of agave plant, and is often made using traditional, labor-intensive methods.
One of the most noticeable differences between tequila and mezcal is their flavor. Tequila is typically smooth and subtle, with hints of fruit and spices, while mezcal has a more complex, smoky flavor that comes from the roasting of the agave hearts before they are fermented and distilled.
Another difference between the two spirits is their production process. Tequila is typically made using modern industrial methods, while mezcal is often produced using traditional techniques that have been passed down for generations. This can give mezcal a more authentic, artisanal character.
In general, tequila is considered to be a more refined and sophisticated spirit, while mezcal is often viewed as a more rustic and traditional drink. Both are popular in Mexico and are enjoyed around the world, so the best way to decide which one you like is to try them both and see which one suits your tastes.
