A simply stunning 100% agave anejo from Carlos Camarena of the La Altena distillery. This Excelencia Gran Reserva Extra Anejo from Tapatio made shows incredible peppery agave character, with buttery grilled veg and a spicy kick. A simply stunning tequila, this is our own Tim F's all-time favourite.

Tasting Notes:
Tasting Notes by TF

N:  A quite extraordinary nose.  The concentration of aromas far exceeds the standard anejo.  The creamy oak is very big, as is to be expected after 3-4 years of ageing in new French Oak, but it never overwhelms the pure, intense agave aromas of buttered grilled peppers and spice.  Toffee-apples, pastry-crusts and some delicate floral notes of sweetpea as the aromas develop.

P:  Fabulous intensity of flavour, with all the elements from the nose perfectly delineated.  Wonderful pure agave, spongecake sweetness, spices, brown sugar, cocoa and a pleasantly tweedy note - all bound together into a sumptuous whole by the enveloping creamy oak.

F:  Warm, rich, absurdly intricate and incredibly long, with the oak character becoming slightly drying toward the death.  Wave after wave of perfectly intermingling flavours. Mind-bogglingly complex, with depths previously unimaginable for a spirit in this category.

C:  No tequila has a right to be this beautiful.  A stunning drink that deserves to be mentioned with the very finest whiskies, cognacs and rums.  Not just the finest tequila that this taster has ever encountered, but easily bears comparison with the very finest spirits this taster has ever encountered.

Been drinking this tequila since my teens and the taste is always the same, not too many people know about this particular tequila, however is well know is the area of Los Altos in Jalisco Mexico. It is the best, have a few drinks and it will not even have the hangover effect due to the pureness of a well made drink from the Camarena family.
