This certified-organic, limited-edition blanco is light but complex, mixing subtle hints of lemon and grapefruit and floral honeysuckle. While the flavor is delicate, melding mineral, citrus and floral notes, the overall impression is astringent and bracing, not wimpy.
Herradura released a port-finished reposado in 2012, and it was so good it had to be repeated with another vintage in 2016. This unusual reposado was aged for 11 months in American oak, then finished for two months in vintage port casks for mouthwatering touches of juicy red fruit.
Deliberately engineered to create scotch-like flavors, this añejo spends 18 months in American oak barrels. The end result is a maple hue and distinct sweetness on the nose and palate, with plenty of brown sugar, cocoa and clove, lightened by a hint of tropical fruit.
Rich with butterscotch, citrus and spice, this extra-special extra añejo aged for more than four years in new French oak, then 13 additional years in glass jugs. It’s decadent and delicious, a real special-occasion bottle for the tequila lover.
