Tequila Tapatío Excelencia 750ML - Aged for four years in the first use of deep charred American white oak barrels.

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.

Tasting Notes 

  • Appearance - Mahogany color, dark amber with reddish tones. Great body and clear presence of essential oils, which hang from the glass.
  • Aroma - Large concentrations of vanilla, maple, caramel, and apple 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.
  • Taste - 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.  
  • Comments - Tequila to taste neat. It would be unforgivable to mix on a cocktail and even dilute it with water or ice on the rocks. Comparable to the best whiskies or cognacs that exist in the market.

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.
