Tequila Fuenteseca Extra Anejo 21 Year Old

4 units available online.
Product description

Often described as the world's first "Grand Cru" Tequila, Master Distiller Enrique Fonseca created this product with the goal of producing the world's oldest aged tequila. 

It is produced exclusively in copper-pot stills, but the barrel-aging technique is often the most talked about part of the process.  Most of the spirit was rested in barrels that once aged Canadian rye whiskey, although one barrel used previously held white wine from California.

The casks were stored for 10 years in a dry, earthen-floor aging room in the town of Atotonilco el Alto, before being designated as worthy of a longer aging, and moved to a higher, cooler climate of Chapingo, Jalisco, which sits on the slope above Atotonilco el Alto. 

A collector's item, these are hard to find and command 

Bottled at 43.5% ABV

Unexpectedly pale in color for an extra anejo.  Nose is moderately spicy, rounded with notes of butterscotch.  Taste is of oaky vanilla, but the agave still comes through nicely- leaving a soft, long finish, with hints of coconut.
