As the name suggests, Extra Añejo tequilas are tequilas aged for the longest duration of time. To be classified as Extra Añejo, a tequila must age for at least three years. They age theirs for 3 .5 years because they feel that amount of time yields the best flavour. When you choose Baston del Rey tequilas, you're not only getting great tequila, their bottles are handmade works of art. Small-town artisans in Guadalajara, Mexico hand-carve these bottles into little masterpieces. When you enjoy their tequilas, be sure to take note of these fine pieces of art, including Baston del Rey's signature logo that showcases the "Sceptre of the King," the story behind their name and brand.
From the start, the beautiful colouring of this Extra Añejo is reminiscent of a French cognac. In fact, this is more of a high end cognac than a tequila in some ways. Its aroma alone can satisfy you with delicious caramel and pear, with hints of cherry and vanilla. After a sip, this tequila is like candy, with a body that really lingers on the palate, the incredible flavours just keep going! This Extra Añejo is smooth and complex, but still sweet, making a memorable after dinner aperitif.
